Seem like an odd attitude from someone who has "uncensored BBS" in their tag. I'm confused, are you FOR censorship, or AGAINST it?
Regardless, if anyone ever DOES post something significant on Usenet you'll miss it, FIOS-boy!
"FIOS boys" can still READ all the usenet they want through a large variety of free usenet servers, and some of the free ones also allow posting.
Then there is Google groups, which allows you to search through all the TEXT usenet groups available.
Last but not least, one can purchase a paid account.
Poor people just wanting to read usenet and post messages... really aren't getting hurt by this.
Those who want to download lots of binaries though... might.--
