I still miss Usenet (this post prompted by [personal profile] jenett 's question of the eek being "how do you use Dreamwidth?"

Best typo. I have so many questions of the eek, and how I use or fail to use Dreamwidth is right up there.

I missed usenet for quite a long time, though I was never as active as many of my friends and acquaintances. Now that you mention it, I think I do still miss it; I just don't think about it so often.

I do too. And the smaller-yet-still-large internet.

I don't know, I was a terribly mean and wanky person in my younger days on Usenet. I'm glad to be in places where records of my terrible behavior aren't quite so evident. I have grown and changed a lot since then.

But I do understand why other people miss it.

I miss Usenet too. I check in occasionally but the people I liked reading on Usenet don't post.
