The only time I've used it in years was when the Joyce Hatto scandal broke and I wanted to hang out with the geeks on rec.arts.music.classical.whinge or whatever the group was.

Admittedly my impression that usenet is dying comes from alt.tv.red-dwarf, which may not be the best example. I mean, yeah, that's dying but there are other factors involved.

Damn you Doug Naylor.
