Just went to the site, and had a look around. Lot of
old posts archived there. Much like Google Groups.
I've not been a Giggle Groper poster, and they threw
me off Moaners Shrub. Found I could not log back on.
Wonder if Giggle and Moaner are useful for usenet
posters who want to go back and look at old posts?

Never cared for web forums.
They tend to sell your email address and the next thing you know your inbox is getting 1000 spams a day.
I suspect if HomeBlowersHub is stealing content from USENET, they are selling email addresses as well.
They're just doing what Google and numerous other smaller companies
are doing: providing a web-based gateway to Usenet for people who
don't know Usenet. Since nobody owns Usenet, it's not as if anyone can
steal it. They're in it for the clicks - the more hits to their site,
the more it is worth to potential buyers, and the more advertising
revenue they can earn from it.
Even if they explained in great detail to their users what they are
doing and what Usenet is, the majority of them wouldn't care. They're
looking for advice, not a philosophical discussion on the Internet,
the WWW, and Usenet, and/or the propriety of channeling Usenet
newsgroups onto the web.
