instead of posting your working examples to a website, you may now post
directly to a newsgroup dedicated to html.

If your news service does not carry the group, ask them to.

Why? I encourage people to post their
Java, JavaScript, HTML and CSS problems
to the web, then give a link.

Why?

The problem with posting HTML examples to a newsgroup -- any
newsgroup -- is that anyone who wants to help must extract the
article, save it as some html name, point the browser at it, and
still (probably) not have the images and CSS that may be needed to
illustrate the problem.

Someone who is asking for help should not also ask potential helpers
to jump through hoops. It's bad strategy. Some people (me among
them, for what that's worth) are willing to point a browser at a
given URL and maybe look at the source code if appropriate, but
would not go the extra mile of creating files on my own disk. So
anyone who uses your approach strikes us out of the pool of possible
helpers.
