One could argue that it ended when all of the major ISPs stopped
carrying Usenet as a free service. After that there were only 3 types on
users on Usenet.
1. People who are actually here for conversation
3. Binary downloaders.
OK, maybe 4 types. The last are the trolls who still linger, add
nothing to the conversation, and only try to cause trouble. Thankfully,
those are getting more and more rare.
Of course, you could also argue that the Eternal September will continue
as long as Google Groups is still around.
