@feld I used to be on a private Danish 'tracker' (not actually a tracker since everybody uses DHT nowadays, I believe). I don't know any Danish USENET archives nor search engines. I'd imagine the situation is similar for many niche areas. The torrenting ecosystem is simply larger. USENET is also less user friendly.
