AOL has announced that they are dumping the newsgroups feature: News.com(.com) has the story.

AOL's decision to scrap newsgroup support comes as other forms of online community have taken favor, according to company spokeswoman Jaymelina Esmele.

"We are seeing that traffic on newsgroups is pretty minimal at this point," she said. "With features like message boards, chat rooms and AOL Blogs, the majority of our members are turning to these to engage in topics of interest to them."
They've left it to Google Groups or paid Usenet services... how sad.
