But you can't recommend groups.google.com. The reason I'm asking this is because my company's (expletive deleted) corporate security department has decided to filter out (using SurfControl) ALL requests to groups.google.com.
I've been using this tool to find answers to technical questions (mostly the comp.* newsgroups) for at least 4 year now (since it was dejanews.com). I feel lost without it. I can often find the answer to my questions in a couple of minutes, and haven't found web searches to be nearly as productive.
It's going to be a bureaucratic uphill battle to get them to change/alter the policy.
Thanks in advance.
