I think its partly the increase of web based forums and message lists, and many new to the net people don't want to bother with installing purpose-built news software, and I can understand people being a bit wary about signing on to google's news thing and giving their e-mail address to do so.
c.s.a.reviews has been very quiet for a long time though, largely because there isn't much new stuff to review I suppose. We are still active at c.s.a.games and welcome anybody who wants to discuss Amiga games, or join in a friendly play-off (we're currently delving into SWIV and Battle Squadron for example).
I still like the Usenet concept and think it still has a role to play, but then I still use an Amiga as my main computer so what do I know?
