I found usenet very confusing. I looked into it for the reasons you listed above. I had a little success with it but never really understood how it worked. I subscribed to news groups and downloaded a newsreader but had a very hard time finding files and bringing it all together. I tried finding someone to help me get started but no one I knew was familiar with it.

I hear usenet is ok but have not tried it. I am looking into the secure file sharing part. The RIAA is really cracking down. Any tried the secure sharing yet?

Secure sharing? Unless it involves shielding your IP address I don't believe there can be such a thing. Tor????

I used eMule. It's a big program, but you can download ANYTHING!!! I've never gotten any kind of infection from it (I do block uploads off my pc).

That sounds like a family and friends type of file sharing. The nature of which would be very limited when searching for files. Very secure, very limited.

Yea it is limited, but if you get enough "friends" on it then it could be alright but you are right limited. Maybe someday soon we will see a "secure" way to share files. I am still waiting LOL.

USENET is way safer than the likes of Limewire or any peer to peer network - working with a good reader makes it simple, take a scan every couple of days and you can build a great collection
