Changing the name of USENET? #olduse.net

๐Ÿ•š๏ธŽ - 2011-10-26

I am toying with the idea of changing the names USENET (the network itself) and netnews (the collection of software that implements netnews) both to "newsnet".
[...]
Since this is a sweeping change, and since I'm not God, I would like to see discussion on whether this is a good thing to do.

One of the suggestions was interesting: "WEB" (!)

To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.

I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
