No, but I might use it from time to time. Although I abandoned newsgroups a
long time ago, they still serve a purpose.

Not personally preferable, but I feel that we should either be mailing list
only, or do things the right way, which means being underneath comp.* as
an official (moderated) newsgroup, and following the accepted standards.
(something we have always strived for in other areas). Thus, the true
question should be: do we support newsgrouping these lists or keep them
mailing list only? I'd rather do the latter than a broken implementation
of the former.
