Usenet is what?

Dare I say, up yours Lifehacker? They say:
Usenet is a wonderful service for finding and downloading digital media, giving you speed and reliability you won't find with other file-sharing options—like, say, BitTorrent.

a worldwide distributed Internet discussion system.
That has some rogue groups dedicated to rather illicit activities. But what do I know.
