This day and age, and even more so since you are
already a Gnus user, this day and age it is strongly
recommended to use gmane.emacs.help from
news.gmane.io instead of Usenet.
Unless you have your own reasons, of course.

Not so long ago, but quite some time I guess, there
was a gateway program somewhere operated by someone
that almost always made certain traffic was synced
between the mailing list (help-gnu-emacs) and the
Usenet gnu.emacs.help. Then that stopped working for
some reason and I didn't hear any news from the issue
But, if it is the Usenet organization and interface
you seek, while still having access to the mailing
lists were the most and the best traffic is, then
Gnus + Gmane is your one-two one-two.
E.g., I have the following listbots/Gmane groups:
6 gmane.comp.audio.audacity.general 21782
6 gmane.comp.shells.zsh.devel 419 48148
6 gmane.comp.shells.zsh.user 114 20136
6 gmane.comp.video.ffmpeg.user 757 79723
6 gmane.discuss 148 17862
6 gmane.emacs.bugs 1395 182826
6 gmane.emacs.devel 3937 251936
3 gmane.emacs.gnus.general 85510
3 gmane.emacs.gnus.user 19301
3 gmane.emacs.help 1 123523
6 gmane.emacs.w3m 24 10410
6 gmane.linux.debian.user 1532 568029
6 gmane.test 15 8555
And these Usenet groups, thru nntp.aioe.org - which
is maybe what you use as well?
6 alt.test 17791 57331 nntp.aioe.org
6 alt.tv.survivor 18 1285 nntp.aioe.org
6 alt.usage.english 34088 34088 nntp.aioe.org
6 rec.sport.boxing 1 31 nntp.aioe.org
I also have mail with nnml.
All the same interface, and a good one at that.
That's the killer.
