In my case, it seems wasteful to use a newsreader just to check the D 
ngs. I do everything from my browser except checking these newsgroups. I 
check all of my email accounts through gmail, I visit half a dozen 
programming forums, I check reddit for interesting stuff, and so on. If 
it weren't for these D newsgroups, I'd have no reason to open 
Thunderbird anymore.

In fact, before picking up D I hadn't used a newsgroup reader in years 
and didn't miss it a bit.
