Using Usenet...

So, I’m totally clueless…I just signed up at newshosting.com, but what do I need to do to actually access stuff? Do I need a newsreader? If so, what’s a good one for Mac? I’ve looked through a bunch of FAQ’s, Googled, read the Usenet Wikipedia article, and I’m still confused as hell.


I’ve always used Outlook to access Usenet groups. Usenet was huge in the early 90s for us “old school” 'net users. Nowadays it’s just filled with spam - most discussion happens on message boards these days.

Usenet is a steaming pile of crap these days, about the only thing it is used for anymore is file trading, and even then, it’s usually the kinds of files you don’t want anyhow…
alt.bestiality for example?
