The Scene is an often used reference among people buried so deep within any particular genre/lifestyle that they mistakenly believe that the entire outside world is instantly familiar with it and know what any particular 'scene' refers to. This is blatantly untrue and therefore The Scene does not exist. However, since we are online here, it is perhaps acceptable to refer to the Undernet world of warez and illegal ftp file swapping as The Scene, since that seems to be the most widely used and known version of the names usage. So long as you know the secret handshake it’s all-good.
