I don't use newsgroups very often...
i tried grabit once, with my ISP newsgroup, but most of the files were missing =P.
Anyway, there's one thing i don't get about pay newsgroups. Why.. would people pay for filesharing? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of pirating?
I know newsgroups are like 50-100KB/s faster than torrents, at most.. but is it worth paying $30 a month for it, when you can torrent stuff for free?
