It's pretty obvious they're no longer interested in running it.
We conquered a behemoth. Now all we have to do is find another host
for the public UseNet archive. Or maybe buy really big hard drives
and keep our own archives.

What is the best method/tool for archiving UseNet posts?

It's not even working when you append "&subject=usenet" (or any other value)
onto the URL.

Maybe they finally realized how terrible it was to destroy the original
dejanews functionality of usenet searching and are working hard in an effort
to restore the archive search to its proper status (I'm not holding my
breath).

Unfortunately, they do have a competing interest generating advertising
revenue from web-portal usenet sites that serve their own archived content,
and which increasingly pop up on google searches.

This is my big gripe about Google. They produce some product that
doesn't make money, it's just "cool". After some time the product
creator gets bored or is told by his boss to quit wasting time on
it. It's not formally discontinued, just abandoned, and gradually loses
functionality. Google rarely deals directly with their "customers" so
there's no place to complain about it....and even if there were a place
to complain, they wouldn't act because they never charged money for it.
