 Pitfalls of Newsgroup Moderation
Remember, a Usenet newsgroup is going to last for years.) Past experience shows both that finding moderators is the hardest part of this and that groups with one moderator are very prone to dying off.
Moderating a newsgroup that gets more than a few articles a day requires either some level of programming, at least to the degree of writing procmail scripts, or a lot of free time to spend on moderating the group.
This involves special issues of its own; the newsgroup tends to generate more spam than mailing lists get, contributors to the mailing list may be worried about their addresses being harvested from the newsgroup, and people contributing to the mailing list may be using software that doesn't generate things like References that news software wants.

 So You Want to Create an Alt Newsgroup   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Basically, every component of the newsgroup name corresponds to a directory or subdirectory of the same name, and that subdirectory typically takes up 512 or more bytes on the machine all by itself.
