               "Internet technology is constantly changing.  Usenet was
               one of the earliest forms of user discussion on the
               Internet, but today has largely been replaced by blogs,
               instant messaging, personal web pages and other
               tools. Asa result, fewer and fewer people are accessing
               Usenet. Therefore, Rogers has decided to stop providing
               Usenet service to Rogers Yahoo customers effective
               December 15, 2005."

     I told them I will be switching to DSL if and when that happens.
