There is a hierarchy of newsgroups called "biz.*" which exists mainly for
announcement from companies of new products, fixes and enhancements,
postings of demo software, and so forth. If your site carries biz.*, and
you feel that a biz.* hierarchy group would suit your purposes, go to
biz.config and ask for it.
Be warned, though, that if your goal is to create a biz.* newsgroup for
posting hype-filled advertisements, no one would read such a newsgroup.
People only want to read newsgroups that are of benefit to them; they're
not about to subscribe to a newsgroup that's nothing but ads for Bob's
Bait and Tackle.
There are a few dozen biz.* newsgroups, some of which get used regularly
and some of which are essentially defunct. If your site carries biz.*,
you can find out more about the hierarchy by asking in biz.config,
biz.general, and biz.misc.
