Old usenet-head here on it regularly from , first met it First problem: there's no identity authentication mechanism in NNTP. So spam is a problem, forged moderation headers are a problem, general abuse is a problem. A modern syndicated forum system with OAuth or some successor model would be a lot easier to ride herd on. Second problem: storage demands expand faster than the user base. Because it's a flood-fill store-and-forward system, each server node tries to replicate the entire feed. Consequently news admins tended to put a short expiry on posts in binary groups so they'd be deleted fairly promptly Third problem: etiquette.
Usenet groups can be thought of as the internet's original social media, with a range of different messaging groups dedicated to different interests and topic areas. However, over time Usenet groups became so targeted with spam that some became difficult to use, and forums eventually succeeded them - only to be themselves succeeded by Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and similar social media platforms. However, there still remains a hardcore user base for Usenet groups, but the sheer volume of material available can be difficult to sort through. This is where NZB indexing websites come in, providing dedicated search tools to make it easier to shift through the various groups to find specific information or files. Some of these NZB sites are free to use, but others may require a nominal annual fee, not least to open up more advanced search options. Registration was public at the time of writing, but apparently the site will be going invite-only very soon. If you can get in before the door closes, signing up will give you a free account which allows five downloads a day and days retention, but no API hits.

We also had two small bedrooms just big enough for a double bed and a dresser. I also had a portable closet from Home Depot that I used so Rob could have the single closet in our main room. There was a gang toilet with six urinals, an equal number of toilets and a dozen basins with mirrors.
