Is there a forum here for discussions on usenet specifically?

Nope. Too niche. How many people use usenet, 0.001%? Maybe 0.1% even of technical people?

Usenet as in discussion groups? Not sure it's even used for that much anymore. Usenet as a source of pirated content? Nope.

Do you think Geekzone has sort of taken over in NZ from Usenet? What other NZ internet forums deal with just about everything that's going on?

Forums have taken over a majority of Usenet groups, altho its a bit more hassle finding the right forums to join and having to visit multiple sites.....

Yeah... it has the same kind of feel as nz.general had in the 90s. Except GZ is more well-behaved. :)
