forum vs newsgroup

Is there a difference and if so what is it? I am confused.

Hello Bassfisher,

The forum sections are part of Vista Forums only and are fully moderated by the Administrators and Moderators here. The newsgroups are mirrored from the MS Public Newsgroups to here and back with us filtering out the junk. The MS Public Newsgroups are also mirrored by a lot of other websites to show up on the websites like it does here, so your post in the newsgroup will show up on any other website that mirrors these newsgroups as well.
