New type of Usenet posts?

Postby mister_loaf » Sun Aug 22, 2021 7:21 pm

On the website for another Usenet downloader program there is this message:

"Due to a new way that a group of posters are posting to the Usenet as of late, our Search indexer is missing some of the posted contents."

Any idea what this "new" way of posting is? I tried asking them but they don't like me because I keep asking why they haven't updated their program in 2 years.

6.82 can't handle the latest NZB's but 6.90 can. There is no usenet "standard" for posting files and people are constantly trying to find new ways to avoid having their files removed from the servers.

I assume it has something to do with the way modern files being posted are being obscured.
