1 thought on “How to Choose The Best Usenet Service For Your Needs”

  1. November 16, 2016 – I have just been a victim of this company (USENETSERVER).

    Last week I wanted to try newsgroups. I chose Newsbin Pro as my software and Usenetserver as my newsgroup source. Both offered free trials. I felt that was fair. Little did I know what I was getting myself into.

    I loaded Newsbin Pro and all seemed okay. I felt like I understood it and proceeded to try to download the headers for about 6 newsgroups to try it out. I have fairly fast internet speed and didn’t think there would be a problem. Little did I know how wrong I was.

    Just in trying to get the headers for 6 newsgroups I ended up (somehow) going over the allotted 10 gig (free) that Usenetserver provided in their free trial. Just in downloading the headers, my internet provider shut me off and at that point it was over. In less than 48 hours after signing up I was done. And there was nothing I could do about it.

    It was not posted on their site and no one told me that just in downloading the headers ALONE would use up the free 10 gig. Actually, according to Usenetserver I used up 29 gig for less than 6 newsgroups and I never got any one of them completely down. I ended up with nothing essentially and it cost me.

    Basically, what Usenetserver did was false advertising from where I stand. They charged me the minute I went over 10 gig (which I wasn’t aware of at the time, not until they messaged me and said THANKS for the #14.99 CHUMP. Then when I argued with them on this, they stated very curtly “That’s our policy – PERIOD and refused to listen to me or reimburse me what I had no control over.

    All I wanted was the $14.99 they charged me once going over the 10 gig. I wasn’t trying to go over 10 gig, all I wanted was the headers to 6 newsgroups so I could try out newsgroups. No one told me that in doing so uses up the free gig.

    In short I paid them for the privilege of raping me. They invited me in with a smile, asked me to bend over very nicely and then proceeded to give it to me good and hard – and I have no recourse and they know it.

    And what makes things all the more rotten is the fact that there is nowhere on the net to review them and let others know what can happen. Except for small places like this.

    I am learning to hate the internet more and more every single day.
