Hogwasher is what I've used in the past and is probably the most fully-featured, but its interface is sorely in need of an overhaul. Thoth was a particularly popular one at one time, as was MacSOUP. Oh yes... and tin, which is very highly regarded by those who use it. You could also try Unison. Panic only first started developing it about 3 or 4 years ago and the early version was a bit weak, but they have continued to actively update and improve it, so it may be worth looking into now.

You might also try out Thunderbird! You may think of it as just an email agent, but it has a fairly full featured Usenet capability too. I have used it in the past and been pleased with it. I don't do a lot of Usenet, so I may not have picked up on the current "hot" features for it, but Thunderbird certainly had the feature set I needed. You might wish to give it a whirl.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
I was on the Mac-Forums honor roll for September 2007
