I’m not too sure about POP and NNTP, but here’s a rule I follow about the net:
 
Believe nobody that says, “The sky is falling.” UUCP isn’t about to die. The funny thing about people that say something is going to be no more, are always EVENTUALLY right, since everything comes to a close or a drastic changeover.
 
But UUCP? Nah. It’s too easy and cheap of a medium to vanish anytime soon. That’s like the people who say that MS=DOS is dead or that nobody uses 8088’s or 286’s anymore.
 
It’s just very wrong opinions, posted as if they were facts :)
