You can find two popular ones here:

http://boards1.wizards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=278

This has been discussed not long ago; most people are against actually
playing here. You can recruit people for your game here, though. I'm
actually running a game right now with people from this group, here:

Because it would interfere with their flame wars, and attention whoring.

Because this is a discussion group, not a storytelling group. People
gather here specifically because they want to talk about the game on
Usenet, not play it here, and the group charter reflects that.

In general, Usenet regulars don't like changes to group policies.

Some, like the number of group xposted, are universal.

Others, like watching for certain posters or keywords, can be set up on a
group by group basis. Besides killing, you can use this to score messages
up or down, so keywords or posters you're interested in will be
highlighted.

I think this is the best site but it is not exactly easy to find
using Google: <http://rpol.net/?date=1125305925&gt; and don't take
my word for it I'm no PbEM expert.
