    First of all you spelled news groups wrong.



    anyways i think they probably have bad retention on binary but good on text files. Also they probably have most of the stuff filtered and if doesnt state that they dont carry logs its not as safe as paying 15 bucks for a newshosting account. Anyways im not a big expert i just use common sense.

    1. It means you would be better off paying for a news server.

    2. Please read the guides posted in the forum (their well written and very
    helpful.) Here is a link to an excellent faq, concerning Newsgroups:

    3. It's as safe as it gets. How safe is that?...
