Usenet is free. Since everybody is already paying an ISP and most ISPs offer broad access to many newsgroups, and since new newsgroups can be set up with varying degrees of difficulty (hard in the "misc" hierarchy, easier in the "alt" hierarchy), everything that goes on in TMF could take place in Usenet.

I like the way UseNet works, and think it slightly better than the Motley Fool method especially for threads. You cannot recommend posts.

However, when I last looked at misc.invest.stocks, or whichever ones I looked at, they were completely useless because the signal to noise ratio was so low.
