JayADee: Hey, I hadn't heard the usenet server idea before. That's a good one. That would solve a few problems I think. Certainly it would free up the international bandwidth. Shouldn't cost too much either, I wouldn't think.
Bad idea. The new Copyright law requires ISPs to remove material from their servers when they know they are illegaly hosted. This includes newsservers. This wouldn't last a second in the network.
