Usenet (TA)

Before we embark on an updated discussion of Usenet and the many popular Mac-based software products that access it, here is a definition of Usenet:

Usenet is a collection of user-submitted notes or messages on various subjects that are posted to servers on a worldwide network. Each subject collection of posted notes is known as a newsgroup. There are thousands of newsgroups and it is possible for you to form a new one. Most newsgroups are hosted on Internet-connected servers, but they can also be hosted from servers that are not part of the Internet. Usenet's original protocol was Unix-to-Unix Copy (UUCP), but today the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP) is [primarily] used.
