    also another question is, how can you randomize port connections? isn't an ISP assigned a specific port to operate under?

    News servers and Usenet has been around a long time, pre-dating the pretty www. It was originally designed to disseminate news articles and postings on topics. Even answer questions.
    Like all things internet, especially ones that can be made anonymous, they tend to degrade into file sharing and pornography, the things people want the most.

    Wrong! Usenet is what people chat, argue and troll on instead of Yahoo Answers when they get round to reading the community guidelines.
