    I'm loving this retention war.

    And I just switched from newshosting to astraweb.
    Oh well. I hope the retention war escalates further

    Yeah this is good, as long as it doesn't affect completion rate. Some companies like to promise more than what they can actually offer.

    I remember usenetserver years ago tried to raise retention and it ended up with a lot of incompletes.

    For $11 guaranteed for life, Astraweb is still the winner.
    I certainly hope the retention war progresses into an equally spirited pricing war.

    Soon Usenet will be the next best thing to scene access.

    No scene politics and no ratios.

    Soon? it already is. The "scene" as people call it is just a place for arrogant kids to hang out and brag about how leet they are (which as it seems, is not much). Why bother trying to get onto a scene ftp server when theres much better sources?

    I have to agree that it's already better due to ease of access and use.

    But pre times for Usenet is nowhere near as fast as dedicated 0day trackers.

    "Dr Dolittle Million Dollar Mutts 2009 DVDRiP XviD-DvF" was uploaded on public trackers before Usenet .

    Also if you have scene access you won't 'miss' anything but the politics is a major drawback.
