Reducing Usenet Bandwidth

In article <>,

Quoting Miquel van Smoorenburg (

Yes, but who's going to set up the home for movies/pictures/warez/mp3
groups? Nobody, ofcourse, since most stuff is not very legal.
But those groups are 98% of todays traffic.

So if you *do* manage to switch everybody over to that new system
and turn off the old usenet, the new system isn't needed anymore.

Sounds like a plan without any drawbacks to me :slight_smile:
