    For me, Usenet is like the Internet. Blocking Usenet is equivalent to blocking the Internet. I used to use Usenet for discussion about politics when I was a youngster. It was about freedom of speech. Of course, people abused it and started uploading CP and warez, but that was never the idea with Usenet to begin with. This is yet another move to run at the big companies' sides. Bad BT, bad!

    It would appear that the ISP was forced to in a court ruling.
