Use(less)net is also known as News or NNTP. This is a very old discussion system. In many news groups there are too much spam now, but some news groups are better. There are no pure Traveller news groups (that I know of), but there are some RPG groups that can be useful. (WARNING! Do not post your e-mail address to a news group if You don’t like spam!) Google has archived a lot of the usenet and google has a good search function. It can be interesting to search for old posts about Traveller. In the three groups listed below you can find some posts about Traveller.
BeRKA stopped wasting his time with use(less)net many years ago.
