I stopped using tin a few (maybe 5) years ago, because every time I started
it it gave me a list of hundreds (seemed like thousands) of new newsgroups
I had to decide, one by one, whether to subscribe to.  It just took too
long to get the the messages I wanted.

Has this changed?

Nowadays I use Pan, under X.  I should try sometime if Pan also has
a text console interface...  Or some documentation.
