Contrary to popular belief, Usenet is not dead, and in fact certain newsgroups are quite active, such as the (in)famous creation/evolution “controversy” discussion newsgroup, which I am proud to say I am a member of. I do not believe that Usenet will ever truly die for as long as there are people who prefer the text of a command line over the shitty Web 2.0, Usenet will live on.

In order to get onto Usenet you need a newsreader and a newsserver, something like Mozilla Thunderbird for the newsreader and for the newsserver would do, both are free and vastly superior to Google Groups, the web-based Usenet interface.

Have fun!
