Hi, I've never used Newsgroups before, though I've read up on how to use them and how they work.
I checked my ISPs newsgroups, but unfortunately they carry zero binary newsgroups :crying: So I was thinking about signing up to a pay server.
But I was wondering about the risk. Obviously they is no chance of an "agent" downloading from you, but this is what I don't get, the server guys must know people are downloading games/movies from them because they are supplying the binary newsgroups (if they didn't want us to download from them they wouldn't supply them, like my ISP). So why don't the authorities come down on the servers ? ie : the guys running around sueing people on kazaa, emule etc. Why do they not go after the newsgroup servers?
And do these pay servers keep logs?, so if they happened to be supoena'd for data anyone getting the stuff would be in the crapper ?
Thanks for the info
