"Please dont post News Links to news.mozilla.org. a simple news:<3F7877BE.50807@mozilla.org> should do the work and it connects to my default Newsserver"

As far as I know, the Mozilla newsgroups are not really part of Usenet. They are located on news.mozilla.org; however, some other news servers carry them. And serverless news URLs would be no good for people without any newsgroup accounts set up.

This is why we normally link to Google Groups. It's Web-based, so most people that can reah MozillaZine can click throught o the groups and it's a lot more permanent than the messages stored on many news servers. The only exception is when Google Groups hasn't cached a news posting at the time a MozillaZine article goes up. Then we have little choice but to use a news: URL.
