Datemas Internet News Server

We offer over 27000 newsgroups.
This news server is listed at the Official Usenet Top 1000 servers.
Our preference is for text groups only. We do not carry binary contents. The cleanfeed filter is used to keep off binaries from text e.a.
Users have to declare to have an age of over 18 years.

Posting rules
Follow the netiquette of the respective group. Do not post binaries into text groups.
No spamming allowed, not more than 8 groups in a crosspost.
Complaints and reports:

As a brake against spamming there is a slow down after 200 posts sent out from a user, then allowing only about one post per minute. Pausing for 4 hours frees the brake. Networks of educational groups may ask for a special login without these limits. The X-Trace header is encrypted now, but the server admin will be able to discover the original poster.
This server is not free to abuse. Please limit your connections to 4 at a time.

Server location: Datacenter park in Falkenstein/Vogtland Sachsen/Germany at N 50°28′ E 12°20′
