There are two controversial issues attached to writing about Usenet: 1) the first rule of Usenet is that you don't talk about Usenet, and 2) it's commonly used to download copyrighted material. Before getting into the how-to portion, we thought it important to address these topics.


If I tell you, they'll come for me... ;)

Thanks Katzy. I've just wasted 1/2 hour reading the replies to the LH post. The more I look at it, the more I wonder, what is the advantage? I understand the illegal side of it, that is not much different to Torrent sites. What are the other benefits?
