Posts

A post is a message contained within a Usenet newsgroup. Posts are often times referred to as newsgroup articles. A post may contain human-readable text, or binary information. Depending on your news reader, posts are generally displayed as a thread, where the original post is followed by responses to that post. Posts are important to Usenet newsgroups because they contain all the data necessary to properly use your favorite newsgroup. The length of time a newsgroup provider stores posts is called retention. Giganews offers 2367 days of binary retention and 4849 days of text retention and offers Giganews members access to the highest quality Usenet posts available.
