Usenet will never be dropped by NetKnow

REcently some big Internet Provider announced that they are dropping USEnet Newsgroups aka Internet Newsgroups declaring that service passe.

I hope all their customers bolted and these providers have to shut down their internet operations!

USEnet is a cornerstone, fundamental and integral Internet service. Without it Internet would not exist!

Netknow declares it will carry USEnet unless the service dies a natural death. Also look at Google Groups which is Google Portal to Usenet.

Sorry, but if you do not have the internet fundamentals, you should perish. Saying USEnet/Internet Newsgroups are passe is as good as saying Internet e-mail is useless.
