It seems that usenet.farm actually doesn’t accept Paysafecard anymore. Just temporary?
Usenet Farm has totally screwed their service. Before the upgrade, there were over 120,000 groups. Now there are only around 8500. Of these, no headers older than about 18 Nov 18 are shown in ~any~ of the newgroups. Many newsgroups are completely empty.
