    anyone else having big problems with Teranews ?

    tried the Teranews free version and found it to be a better newsgroup system
    than my ISP - with more newsgroups, fewer missed posts, longer retention...

    I decided to switch to the paid subscription version,
    but on the verge of doing that - I find the free version has stopped working

    I'm pretty sure it's Teranews with a problem, and not me:
    the settings in my newsreader apps haven't been changed
    and my ISP's news-server can still be accessed fine

    if I were cynical, I might think that Teranews was deliberately undermining
    their own free service, to push users to upgrade to a paid subscription

    so - anyone else having problems with Teranews -
    whether a free account or a subscription account ?

    and to pre-empt the inevitable comment that
    anyone losing newsgroup access won't be able to see this posting -

    they would if they have access to some other news-server - or Google
