Ralph already answered you, but other than the FAQ and spam, the last
actual on-topic post on the newsgroup was in April.  Before that,
the last on-topic post was in 2012 (and Jerry Heyman was nice enough to
redirect the person to the mailing list).

I believe that an FAQ should reflect the most up-to-date information
available.  I think questions like, "Why does inc hang on a Sun?", should
totally be deleted.  Also, I think a number of URLs (like to additional
software) are stale.  Maybe take a look at every question that has a date
before 2008 and think about deleting it?  Okay, yeah, that's probably
most of them.  But still, there's a lot of stale stuff in there.
