    That comparsion lacks a bit.
    Otherwise passworded RARs on OCH would be scam too.
    This is because there are Usenet Boards out there too who offer Infos to "their" own, password protected Releases.

    OK, let's rephrase it: if you didn't get it from a private community and/or there's no mention of a password, it's a scam.

    They were new movies from boneless newsgroup but what I see is that X usenet is not archiving any movies from this group, if true it would make sense, they don't want large files but again they have movies from other groups, I downloaded one.

    I subscribed to boneless using grabit client and I saw no text posts, only files... I thought I would see posts where in other groups would post the password or at least have a discussion. is there such groups ?

    works fine for me:

    http://lookpic.com/O/i2/1715/KHuG55F.png

    usenet has been my source for downloading for a fair few months, I still own accounts on private trackers, have good buffers and so on but what I like about usenet is, it maxes out your connection AND you don't have to seed, win win. my isp offers free usenet access which is like 30 days retention, which isn't too bad as it's free with my package! nice share mate, only if people knew how to use it they'd use it a lot more...

    :)

    Works perfectly with altbinz 0.39.3!
    Only 128 KB/s download, but free.
    Alle sagten es geht nicht, da kam einer der das nicht wusste und tat es.

    Anyone knows how do they make money? Free is good, but what makes me curious is how they survived so long.

    Amulet of life saving.

    As for your question, I guess the free users piggyback on those who pay for the nicer, faster service.

    For popularity.
    This was posted monday on their facebook page:
    Current active user count: 197.830. XS Usenet grows with an average of 521 new accounts per day. Hitting the 200.000 marker will give us a reason to celebrate, don't miss out on our freebees and new updates!
    And now changed the free user policy:

    Free
    Speed 1Mbit
    Data 25GB
    Connections 2
    Max Hosts 1
    SSL No
    Retention 10
    With the 1mbit was no problem, created many accounts and increased the speed, but the 10 day retention force you (for me at least) to buy premium acount.

    Then XS is no longer a good option. Just an option. Thankfully I have a Binload account, which is the best I know for non-IPv6 folks.

    Just4Today is rumored to have retain files much longer than the 10 days they mention. If anyone could confirm that...

    Oh, and two links for the freeloaders

    when did they change the user policy? 2 days ago it was working with files 600+ days old. with 10 days retention it sucks.
    here's a little list with free usenet servers Newsserver Status
    some of them are ipv6 only.
    i am using newszilla6.xs4all.nl (15+ days retention) and weathergirl-ipv6.tele2.net (20+ days retention). no username and password needed.
