Recently I've found this newsreader client for macOS, called usenapp. It does look good and I wanted to test it. But I'm not very familiar with usenet, the need to look for a provider, etc... I've been postponing the issue. Do you still make use of usenet? Does it have place for good discussions? Is it a friendly place nowadays considering the attention now is on mainstream media (reddit, twitter...), or does usenet still as hostile as always? What usergroup do you visit often if you're still on usenet?

Does anyone know of a newsreader that is actually good for Linux?
