Does anyone have a usenet a/c at all?

No, but I miss the wild west atmosphere of the old usenet days.

Is there still useful activity there?

I was into it in the '90s, but when 3e appeared the dnd newsgroup became too big to surf. (That's what you did. You didn't load a page, you surfed it. Cool huh?) Still have my old files of a lot of those messages.

Brette, are you looking to read or to post?

Google has a usenet archive, which allows you to read posts back through 1981, and also allows posting:

e.g.:
http://groups.google.com/group/rec.games.frp.dnd
