In the days before Craigslist, we used newsgroups for many things. Do they still exist?
Yes, see here. https://www.techradar.com/news/the-best-usenet-providers
Ahhh...yes yes yes, I remember. I scored a cool 7-day 750GB trial ...thx. it's all coming back to me now. man, I'm not even signed up for 24h and so far have used up 50G. Thx techradar!
Newsgroups as they once were, pre forum text messaging groups are probably still around, but most these days mean binary usenet and in some countries it still is the best way to share stuff.
In the past (many years ago) i was tech help for one of the resellers myself.
Imho, Newsleecher ready to go is the best:
Free Newsleecher software included.
Unlimited usenet server use.
4000+ days binary file retention.
For the same money as most other USP's with less specs.
I see things have changed since my last look
