What is Usenet?

  • Usenet is a worldwide-distributed discussion system.
  • It consists of a set of "newsgroups" with names that are classified hierarchically by subject.
  • "Articles" or "messages" are "posted" to these newsgroups by people on computers with the appropriate software -- these articles are then broadcast to other interconnected computer systems via a wide variety of networks.
  • Some newsgroups are "moderated"; in these newsgroups, the articles are first sent to a moderator for approval before appearing in the newsgroup.
