We're not beaming usenet into space, are we?

I'm serious - it's not hitting the airwaves with any power anywhere, is it?

Because TV may be bad, but it's arguably "just entertainment". But if usenet ever gets into the hands of extraterrestrials, they won't come anywhere near the solar system.

Uh...is it really any worse than the Hitler transmission? Not trying to end the thread, by the way, but an honest question.
