How is the USENET doing?

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Is traffic on the USENET still increasing year by year? Web forums are more convenient than web interfaces to the USENET. I don't regularly read the posts in any USENET group anymore. I'd think most newcomers to the internet would prefer forums and other "social media" to a USENET reader. However, the USENET is subject to much spam, so perhaps the raw number of posts on it is still increasing. Or perhaps the increase in internet users is still making USENET traffic increase. (HowTos)
