    is it true as usenet stuff uses SSL that your ISP or anyone else for that matter wont have any idea what you are downloading, just that you are downloading?

    Your usenet provider...

    EDIT: SSL on your download client + ssl on your provider = ISP only sees a bunch on encrypted traffic, not walker_2003 has requsted The.Latest.Hollywood.Movie.2014.Bluray-NOOB from the internet, am sending him that file.

    ah k cool, cheers.. just curious as to if usenet will be exempt from this attempted crackdown on copyright content, seems for the most part it is.

    I use SADnzdb & astraweb is my provider, their SSL server seems slow as.. (5kb\sec) their normal non SSL was super fast though?

    Depends if the usenet and tracker sites are added to the blacklist of sites the government will require all ISPs to block along with thepiratebay.org. You can still circumvent this though.

    Will it matter if they block the actual site though? All it would do would be stopping people from logging in/signing up?

    If they were already signed up, it'd still work for the most part as you'd be using a different address for the servers?

    Clueless as to how this all works, so genuinely curious there.

    They could simply block the the IP addresses for the usenet indexer sites and usenet providers which would prevent any API calls or downloads.

    Sure, but you could use a VPN or other Tor to get around said blacklist.
