To my mind using any form of social media is a very very very bad
Is usenet not social media?
It's definitely more social than the likes of Twitface and all the
other systems that the young badly brought up phone junkies use.
Honestly, I don't think the young are the problem. It's the middle-aged
failures which are often the instigators of abuse. Apart from the
professional ****-stirrers; Katie Hopkins et al.
I suspect the average age of usenetters is greater than that of the
twitterers, so most of us will have grown up learning how to interact

In fact, the worst abuse I've received online has been on Usenet. I'm an
avid user of Twitter and it's generally a more pleasant experience. Can't

Another point, IME most young people don't use usenet and prefer
farcebook and ****ter.

their main form of social media. They are also on Twitter and FB but mostly
