Current retention of 37 days in most groups and it keeps going up!
Giganews has had a 50 day retention period in all binaries groups for a few months now.
Giganews had all the way down to 42 to 43 days retention in all groups a few weeks ago. They just upgraded back to 51 days in most groups. 52 retention sometimes in a few groups.
If you need the proof about giganews I will be happy to provide it for you.
What's the best newsgroup reader/software that ya'll would recommend??
