Is usenet dying? (obfuscating)

Postby JCDinPGH » Wed Dec 13, 2017 12:07 am

For the last few months, all posts I am trying to download (mostly movies) , only have a PAR2 but the rest (RAR files) are all obfuscated I presume. I don't really know if there is a simple solution but as I'm sure others are also, I'm frustrated. I saw mentions of a possible solution from a few months ago. Is that still in the works? Is the solution to also pay for a good indexer as well as a usenet provider and possibly VPN provider? Is a good indexer a way around this? Asking, as I really don't know and don't want to pay for yet another service if it isn't a good solution.
Any suggestions?

It's changing for sure. I'm not sure where it's going to end up. Dex and i chase after the changes as they happen.
