Question by Nick W: Access to a UseNet Server?
I want to access a UseNet server but I don’t know of any sever addresses or free servers! Can someone point me in the right direction?
I have Unison 1.7.9 installed on my MacBook.
Answer by dietbarqs12345 If you haven’t yet, check with your ISP. Comcast and I would expect most others provide you with Usenet access, calling it news server or newsgroups. They don’t really go out of their way to make it known, I suspect because most people don’t care about it and it is not simple to use which would probably cause support problems. My Comcast service uses Giganews with an included monthly usage limit, but can pay for upgrade from Giganews.

How to setup Usenet. Basically, you need to download a client, followed by a server and finally a search engine. You can use different sources for each one on those. I also forgot to mention: When the files finishes downloading they’ll usually be located at documents/downloads/complete. Also, your ISP may offer Usenet servers for free. Video Rating: 4 / 5

John Doe is of course, Jerry Reynolds. Who sue’s someone anonymously? Just read through this site: www.rahul.net/falk/Nz/deposition.pdf to see the connections between Sexzilla.com and Netzilla.com, and Jerry Reynolds, and the spam operation he had going that helped in part to kill UUNet / Usenet, in the late 90’s.
