    My friend tried getting me into newsgroups about a year ago, and introduced me to Grabit. I fiddled around with it for a bit and was disinterested. I then found out how easy it was using torrents, and haven't looked back.

    With some of the bigger names going down in the torrent scene though, I have been considering going back to newsgroups.

    Before making the jump, I was wondering if anyone can name the pros and cons of using each.

    Usenet:
    100% worry free downloading at 100% of your connection speed with a 100% chance of finishing every download you make with a 0% chance of ever being shut down.

    BT:
    It's free.... ummm.
    You get to kiss a lot of ass trying to get into the hottest trackers before they get shut down. LOL
    Wait... that's not a pro.

    Ummm... that's all I got for BT.

    Usenet: Most provider only record download amount , they don't record what content you download. No feds will ever show up because you used newsgroups.

    BT: It'll never be as safe as usenet... I guess thats a con too :/

    As if to say that newsgroups costs money?

    Many people get free newsgroups access through their ISP.

    Having to pay for Usenet (a good premium provider) isn't really a con in my eyes.
    It keeps all the kiddies at bay, so things don't get too main stream.

    That is unless they steal daddy's credit card. lol.

    I'm fine if most of you stick to bittorrent. It'll keep some of the pressure off use Usenet users.
