Not really.

It's almost all spam and binaries now. Most of the worthwhile content wound up on forums and blogs. Most ISPs dropped access within the last decade.

AH alt.games.hobby.frp.general, how I miss thee...

I haven't been on Usenet for a loooong time, as Krensky said my ISP dropped it some time ago and I haven't bothered trying to find a webserver that polls it.

Nah, too tricky and obvious.

4cha, craigs list, or whatever for messages. Not sure for data, but I know past board and various file drop sites have been used for this.
