Perhaps what is needed is a read-only nntp group with quick help tips
such as what is appropriate on each forum/group, how to post, etc. I
think I saw some tips (I'm talking out of year-old memories) on the web
interface, but I don't see them on NNTP.

We try to make the names pretty self-descriptive; many newsreaders can
read a description field (it's optional in the RFC as I recall) that
gives a text description of the group. I don't know if the server we use
can present that, but I think it can.

I don't recall seeing it. Hovering the mouse pointer over the names do not show
a description in
thunderbird, so either the server doesn't send it or Th. doesn't use it. But I
have a foggy
recollection of seeing descriptions with leafnode.
