Goodbye to Usenet on Eclipse - it has 'retired'


[link to this post]
 
Just been informed in a support chat that news.eclipse.co.uk 'has been retired' and 'The news service is not something that we offer anymore'. This is despite the service status page current showing News as ' Working' !! False advertising to show something you no longer offer?

And the KB still mentions how to connect to News:

Apparently it was a free service (like email) so they could shut it without prior notice.

The prices go up, the service goes down....
