+ - Spam Causes Microsoft to Kill Newsgroups->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "Some two thousand public and twenty two hundred private newsgroups devoted to and managed by Microsoft support are going to be phased out in favor of forums. The reason being? Newsgroup spam. The Register calls it "killing newsgroups" but Microsoft eloquently calls it "the evolution of communities." Always managing to spin it in a positive light! Let's hope the spam posts and voting bots in their forums remain controllable."
