Usenet is not gonna be main thing mainly because things are even harder on there now, hidden names and passwords when it comes to the real goods every day, sure regular joe can still find stuff and run into some spam but I dont see usenet to be mainstream like torrents ever.
Main thing ? Usenet's been around long before there was a WWW or even the word.... browser.
"harder on there now, hidden names and passwords" *chuckles* *chuckles* *chuckles*
"I dont see usenet to be mainstream like torrents ever" = And I see
it, exactly the opposite. Torrents will never match the speed and
certainly..... NEVER match the retention.
On the basis of content alone, if you combined every known torrent in one bucket.....you'd still need another couple hundred thousand more to even come close to what's available to Usenet users. And that content is available 24/7 , and we don't need no stankin' seeders....ever
