    I believe he is letting it go through to get the support groups shut
    down. So he don't have to worry with it anymore.

    I'd like to see them do that - Moz's abuse desk can't be too busy anyway
    - never saw/heard of spam coming from them. But isn't it up to
    gigglenews to do the filtering? Isn't that one of the main reasons to
    farm out NNTP servers?

    reg, you've put your finger on it ... MultiMedia, MultiMedia ... many
    media's ... pics are only one media so should be posted to SingleMedia
    groups, or similar!!

    MultiMedia ... Pics with you SAYING what the pics show ... Pics and
    Sound = MultiMedia.

    That will fix your problem!

    With the full headers, which include Message-ID, it's easy for an admin
