    Q: "Please give me access to use nntp".
    A: "No way".

    More or less.

    The openSUSE forums are prefixed with opensuse.*

    That should be pretty clear, I think. The NNTP servers host forums for
    Novell, NetIQ, SUSE, and openSUSE, so subscribe to the ones you want, and
    ignore the ones you don't.

    To me this seems like something that is intuitively obvious and not in
    need of a FAQ entry.
