Yes, and they probably have the NNTP ports blocked on their local

As far as I'm concerned Google is great and probably the best thing to
happen in terms keeping usenet alive.
Well, I wouldn't classify it as 'great' but it is satisfactory for my
purposes and I have been using it many years. There are some anal
retentive usenet folks who kill file all GG posts but I ignore people
with bad attitudes anyway. I overcome the spam problem by opening a
free hotmail account, set that account to dump all mail into a spam
folder and delete it once a week, then use that hotmail account to
open a google account. That way I never see the spam and Microsoft
has to deal with it.
