    because paying 7,50 for a legal service is something different than paying for paysite acces. (dont tell me you didnt mean paysites because self earned acces is allmost impossible to get)

    Possible but inconvenient, as in having to cob together multiple free news servers and then manage simultaneous connections to them.

    Depends on your definition of quality. My ISP provides newsgroups that, for text purposes, are of very high quality. Good luck getting binaries with them, though.

    It's worth it to dish out the money to get an account on a good news server.

    My ISP (NTL) has newsgroups and I can get some binaries but it is very limited. The speeds are good though, I easily max out my 10M connection.

    @satansraiser: is that Helena Bonham Carter in your sig?

    I use my ISP's newsgroup and it's awesome. I get everything I want. Retention is like 25 days, though. So I just keep up with what's out and get it in the beginning.
