I am sorry I started this. We are not on an Ubuntu list. But the process
you describe above does not work. I have tried it. 
Q: How can I choose what groups to post in? ... Q: How about an example?
A: Ok. Let's say you want to report that Gretzky has been traded from
the Oilers to the Kings. Now right away you might think
would be enough. WRONG. Many more people might be interested. This is a
big trade! Since it's a NEWS article, it belongs in the news.* hierarchy
as well. If you are a news admin, or there is one on your machine, try
news.admin. If not, use news.misc. The Oilers are probably interested in
geology, so try sci.physics. He is a big star, so post to sci.astro, and because they are also interested in stars. Next, his name is
Polish sounding. So post to soc.culture.polish. But that group doesn't
exist, so cross-post to news.groups suggesting it should be created.
With this many groups of interest, your article will be quite bizarre,
so post to talk.bizarre as well. (And post to comp.std.mumps, since they
hardly get any articles there, and a "comp" group will propagate your
article further.) You may also find it is more fun to post the article
once in each group. If you list all the newsgroups in the same article,
some newsreaders will only show the the article to the reader once!
