The discussion groups in Usenet are great, because they are a place where you can meet people that have the same interests in a specific area and also learn a great deal about things. The discussion groups can contain conversations between two people only or a whole bunch of people. Anyone can join the discussion in these groups, as long as you make sure that you follow the basic Usenet etiquette, you will certainly have a great time. It is always a good idea to read the other threads in the discussion groups before you post a question, as maybe somebody has already posted something similar. Because of the large number of messages in these discussion groups, the fewer off-topic or duplicate messages there are, the better for every user.
