So? It IS Usenet.

Assuming you're a programmer, I'm going to explain the flaw in your logic.

Apparently, you're implying that because this is a "Usenet" newsgroup, it is
logical to post any kind of message to it. Usenet is a messaging system.
However, it is not a single messaging system, even though all Usenet servers
use the same protocol. A protocol is a standard for messaging that enables
diverse systems to send, receive, and understand messages from each other.
The use of a single protocol by multiple systems is common. For example,
almost all traffic on the Internet is sent via TCP or UDP.

In fact, like the WWW, Usenet has many servers. Each server may host many
newsgroups. Each newsgroup is a logical grouping of messages, which is
further broken down into hierarchies of subjects. The reasons for this are
the same reasons that your hard drive is divided up into logical groupings
of files in a hierarchy of directories. Files are easier to find when they
are logically grouped. In Usenet, the information that one is looking for is
easier to find because of the logical grouping of newsgroups, and the
hierarchy of subjects.

The reason why it is not logical to post a message on a newsgroup that is
not relevant to that newsgroup's purpose is to maintain the logical order
that enables users to find what they need or want quickly. Messages that do
not fall into the category of a newsgroup's stated purpose disrupt the
order, and make the medium more difficult to use.

The best test of any behavior is to imagine what would happen if everybody
practiced it. If everyone posted any message willy-nilly on any newsgroup,
newsgroups would become useless. They would simply be containers of random
messages, none of which would necessarily have anything to do with any of
the others. It would be akin to taking an encyclopedia, removing all of the
pages from all of the volumes, and replacing them in random order. One would
have to start at the beginning and scan every page until one found the
information one was looking for, every single time one needed to use it.

Apparently, at some point in our history, one or more people had the idea of
organizing things logically, for the purpose of optimizing time spent
looking for things. The human race has been doing this for our entire
recorded history. Perhaps it's a good idea.

So there.
