Not everything posted on Usenet is really public. You can download it, but you have to find it. A single upload can be spread across different binary groups. So choose your indexer wisely.
A few things you should know
- Not everything posted on Usenet is really public. You can download it, but you have to find it. A single upload can be spread across different binary groups. Only the uploader has the list off all parts of his upload. So the uploader decides to whom he gives his uploads.
- As a result sometimes only one or two indexer have the uploads of this specific uploader in question. It's quite possible that the uploader gets paid by these indexers.
- Its important to have multiple indexers to have a better chance at finding everything you need.
- Some indexers are redundent when they do not have any scene uploader connections and just index using normal methods. Redundent here means you only need one of them.
- Never rely on only one indexer. They may close down at any time.
- Never use payment methods like paypal or credit cards. Indexers are operating on clearly illegal grounds. Operators of these indexers that use paypal are an easy catch for law enforcement and your next on the hook when they confiscate the payment history (which is saved for at least ten years by companies like paypal - required by tax and aml rules). Bitcoin as a payment method is the best option. Crypto is coming anyway so be a first mover and be ahead of the sheeps.
- Using a VPN when downloading from usenet is not necessary. You are not uploading anything and most usenet provider do not log. The hole point of usenet is, that it is way safer then torrents.
This indexer has definitely some connections in the uploader scene of usenet. They have unique uploads not found anywhere else.
They are strong in 4K porn releases and general in movies and tv shows.
This one is the top dog in the usenet space backed by a large community and custom nzb indexing software. They have a lot of releases and are themselves uploading content to usenet.
We will further extend this list, but in short these two are the best.
