    In which groups are lively discussions still running?

    If you want to look slightly outside usenet, have a look at the
    news.grc.com server. There is a somewhat out-of-date list here: <https://www.grc.com/nntpquickref.htm>

    Sometimes people claim sock puppet w/o justification.

    If the medium is a usenet client, suscribe to gmane.io <news.gmane.io>,
    and access plenty of technical mailing lists.

    The website instructing how to use gmane is dead. I haven't tested the
    server to see if it still works the way it used to. Previously one
    needed instructions for how to do 'self authentication' to post and
    still have one's email address obfuscated.
