why is Google Groups and Usenet down for the last two days (June 28, 2011)?

Question by : why is Google Groups and Usenet down for the last two days (June 28, 2011)?
Google Groups and Usenet are not receiving posts for the last 48 hours as of 28.6.2011
Contrary to the assertion of one answer, Google Groups is still down as of 29.6.11 in Europe. Logging in from the USA on a US server using an anonymizer such as HMA does not change things. Google Groups is down; Google Groups not working. Usenet indeed may be fine but I use Google Groups as the interface.
As of 30.06.2011 Google Groups is slowly working again, but only posting things from two days ago. There appears to be some huge traffic jam or backup.

Not sure, have seen same problem since June 25 2011, the system hiccup’ed and then went down solid. WTF, its part of a *lot* of people’s lives to get daily feeds on information and conversation with like minded folks. I’ve been using USENET News for a number of years, since about 1989 or so and was shocked when Google took it over, bought it out, or whatever and started Google Groups. It basically has gone downhill since. Centralized is not the answer, distributed is the answer.

That total includes previously undisclosed plans for newly aggressive spending by the Koch brothers, who are steering funding to build sophisticated, county-by-county operations in key states. POLITICO has learned that Koch-related organizations plan to spend about 0 million ahead of the 2012 elections – twice what they had been expected to commit. Just the spending linked to the Koch network is more than the 0 million that John McCain raised for his entire presidential campaign four years ago. And the billion total surpasses the 0 million that Barack Obama, one of the most prolific fundraisers ever, collected for his 2008 campaign…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. *Read more here from MIKE ALLEN and JIM VANDEHEI at Politico: www.politico.com Support The Young Turks by Subscribing bit.ly Like Us on Facebook: www.fb.com Follow Us on Twitter: twitter.com Find out how to watch The Young Turks on Current by clicking here: www.current.com
