Possible to read/write, yes. Do some research on NNTP though, that's where
I'd start.
As for only displaying stuff from your forum.... maybe, but then why link to
the ms groups?

Personally I think it's a bad idea though. You are giving the false
impression to visitors to your site that their question was answered from
another visitor to your site when it wasn't.... this is fraud in my book.

hi court,

i think, its not a bad idea, because if i display all newsgroup-messages
in my forum -- its nothing else than a view of the microsoft-newsgroup

i want to push the chanches for answers -- in the moment, my friend and
me are the only persons who answer the newbies.

if i can post the questions to the microsoft-newsgroup, the possibility
of answers is very higher. and further, i only want to read "my"
messages from the newsgroup back to my forum.(not the hole
newsgroup-messages)

a little like "http://www.developersdex.com/"

what do you think about my idea now?

best regards

tommy

my thoughts on what you are attempting is the same. You are still taking
other peoples answers and putting them on your site as if they are yours. If
you do something like include a header/note saying that these posts/answers
are from the newsgroups then no problem. I'm not a big fan of things like
devdex either. If you are going to poll the newsgroups then goto the
newsgroups. There is a web interface for them already. Anyway, that's just
my opinion.

Oh, and it's much easier if you stick with one username for posting, that
way it's easy to know posts from replies/followups.

Anyway, just do some googling on NNTP and .NET and you should easily get
what you are after.
