Newsdemon Provides Free Access to Humor Newsgroup

By Newsgroup Usenet February 3rd, 2009 has announced it will begin offering free access to the Usenet newsgroup rec.funny.humor. The newsgroup will have exclusive free access provided by the premium Usenet provider in a continuing effort to grow awareness of the vast variety of topics Usenet represents.

 Usenet has had a long history of building online communities on specific topics. Ranging from science to philosophy, Usenet has been home to communities that catered to practically any subject or matter.

One of the oldest and most popular newsgroup to date has been rec.humor.funny. The newsgroup is a comedy publication that provides daily editor-selected jokes.

Since the early days of Usenet, a moderated joke newsgroup rec.humor.funny has been the longest standing and consistently active newsgroup of its kind. As a response to the un-moderated rec.humor newsgroup, rec.humor.funny lent itself to be the source of comedy. Started by Brad Templeton, rec.humor.funny took the challenge of weeding out duplicates, misdirected messages and comments of other same topic newsgroups and created the premier comedy newsmagazine haven.

 For your entertainment and continuing to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Usenet, is now offering free access to the newsgroup.

 You’ll need a newsreader to access the group. Please use the information below to enter the information in your newsreader which you’ll need to access, download and read the newsgroup.
