Is Google effectively killing off Google Groups? https://groups.google.com/a/isocpp.org/forum/m/#!msg/sg14/FZEWCOSyFlk/MFUXyq1YDAAJ
@cwebber Wouldn't be surprising considering that they've already announced that they're shutting down Google+
@cwebber When was the last time they killed off a product? Oh yeah...
@cwebber I can't tell if it's good or bad. You need Google account to participate so it's kinda good if it dies out?
Which seems to still not work for searches across all groups, though searches within a single group work.
@cwebber my guess for some time has been: It's too painful for them to kill it outright, so they're letting it rot and encouraging the largest uses of resources to migrate.
@cwebber This wouldn't surprise me, since it's been humming along in that state of semi-neglect for some time now.
Unfortunately Yahoo Groups et al have also hit a similar state of mostly being unusable.
@trashheap @cwebber no problem, while Google may take HTTP groups down, I'm confident NNTP is not going to disappear any time soon, newgroups #Usenet community is unlikely on free text-only servers. Perhaps, in a decade or 2, no sooner shall die-hard users be replaced by the new generation grown amid Discord, Telegram, and social networks
