The only reasonable item on this list to question is usenet, considering its 99% binaries and even that isn't all that useful with the crazy rate of DMCA takedowns these days.
The rest is all amazing, get out.
But DMCA takedowns are crazy these days, you can't get anything without automated downloading
Get the same speeds off a seedbox for about the same cost, but don't have to deal with DMCAs
What is RSS good for?
I've tried to get news this way but it just end up as a spambox.
A long time ago I figured out how to get my youtube subs there, but I lost the address and webcomics was all I evr usd it for.

<eah thats right but they security holes in SMS getting every fucking day worser, thats the problem. Are you haveing SMS still activated on your phone? Better you would disable it, anon
>using over SSH

An anonymous one too
And we have conversations like this.
Most websites you sign up for require an email. It's better to use an email address, which is anonymous, than a real address.
Platform-agnostic chatroom with good support for encryption, and bots if necessary. What would you suggest we use instead, Skype?
Pretty much everyone who has a cell phone has SMS, and most likely gets unlimited SMS messages. If you want to get in contact with someone who has a cell phone, and you don't want to call them, SMS is the best way to get in touch with them.
Although I'm welcome to hear your proposed alternatives.
You can get full on with it and create all kinds of filters. Too complicated to explain in one go or learn in one step its a skill you need to build.
However as shit as the media is these days the ability to curate your own is priceless.
