Gee, I wonder why ...

From a popup window when you launch Newsgroups on AOL:

"Please Note: The AOL Newsgroup service will be discontinued in early 2005.

For members using AOL over a dial-up connection, you will no longer be
able to access Newsgroups. If you have a separate high-speed
connection, you can contact your broadband provider to see if they
offer Newsgroups. Newsgroup services can often be accessed through a
third party reader, such as Mozilla Thunderbird

Alternatively, you can access Newsgroups via Google at

We apologize for this inconvenience."
