Have started trying to read usenet again (after several years away) and it looks as if the s/n ratio has deteriorated there...

I don't really read usenet but I can tell you the s/n ratio here is pretty damn high.  :)  Welcome.

There's still some very good (and fun!) stuff in the usenet sci.space.* groups at times, I just find myself not wanting to do all the digging through the spams and pointless flames and debates.
All the kill-filing in the world isn't enough in getting rid of all the unwanted stuff there.

Here the moderation works so well and there are so many smart wise and nice people that it's much better.

But usenet still has its place.
