    I have used and liked Astraweb for a long time. But now I have noticed that a lot of the files I want to download seem to have been removed from the server.

    This kind of defeats the purpose of USENET. Can anyone recommend a different provider?

    I'd be interested in something with SSL encryption, unlimited service and uncensored service.

    Can anyone make any recommendations? I have tried USENET server in the past it was okay. I believe that they are censored now. I recently tried Tweaknews and found it to be very slow.

    Thank you in advance, I appreciate any help.

    I'm using dutch providers like XLNed and XSnews and am satisfied cause in netherlands they are more loyal to DMCA.

    Thank you. I will have to check them out.

    Right now I'm going to have to do a lot of research to figure out which provider is best. I'm having difficulty with content not being available on astraweb
