    The first suggestion would be to pick a newsgroup that is still alive
    and has not been rm-grouped over a decade ago.

    From "perldoc -q newsgroup":
    Some years ago, comp.lang.perl was divided into those groups, and
    comp.lang.perl itself officially removed. While that group may still be
    found on some news servers, it is unwise to use it, because postings
    there will not appear on news servers which honour the official list of
    group names. Use comp.lang.perl.misc for topics which do not have a
    more-appropriate specific group.
