Because I don't want to be isolated from some of you Ruby geniuses just 
because you have the privilege of access to an NNTP server and I don't.  
I'm sure there are many others who would like to be using NNTP but 
can't.  Just because the problems have been going on for three years 
doesn't mean that they can't be fixed.  In fact, it doesn't even mean 
that anyone has spent a long time trying to fix them.  I'm sure that 
there is a solution, and I agree with the others who say that the Ruby 
community is already fragmented enough.
