Hello I am a outsider and I was wondering what all these forums were.
They seam to be very interesting but I habe no idea what is what.
What do you mean by "these forums"? Usenet? Eternal September? Or
something else altogether?
You can find a definition and description of Usenet in many places, such
as Wikipedia or InfoGalactic: https://infogalactic.com/info/Usenet
Eternal September is one of many organizations that provide access to
some portion of Usenet. They don't offer all the different newsgroups
but they do offer a good percentage of them and they are free so that
makes them relatively popular.
rec.arts.tv is a Usenet group dedicated to discussions about
television programs and personnel. Occasionally someone will post an
item about politics, but that's rare. Also rare are posts about gay
people, or people of colour but they sometimes slip through the very
vigorous policing of content. If you want to have a serious discussion
about the future of tv production, the challenge broadcasters face from
streaming content or the reasons why Nashville, Longmire and Happy Days
were cancelled, this is the place. It's all tv, all the time!
