Now I have dabbled slightly in the past in using USENET. I wouldnt say im versed in it.
I have recently given thought to trying USENET again, but would look at using a Reliable, Stable, Up to Date and Flexible Vendor.
Basically I need good response times without the sn00ty attitude of USENEXT (whos website borked at one point and so they got away with charging for the month instead of allowing me to leave within the free trial period).
On top of this, although being technically savvy in most ways and not all, I wouldnt be the type to supply me Credit or Debit card details over the net freely. So I would be looking at using paypal.
