I've been getting hassle from my parents and I'm having trouble explaining to them why Usenet is fairly safe. They seem to think men in black will come round and beat me till I give them £100 million because I download things from usenet. ;D
Can anyone give me a simple way of explaining to them how this won't happen? I've read up a bit and know the basics myself but struggle when I attempt to explain how it's safer than other downloading methods. I also have SSL from my usenet provider - that adds extra protection doesn't it? Anyways, my folks are reasonably up-to-date with technology....I just need something to put their minds at rest!
Any help much appreciated
