Back up a step!!! This *is* a Usenet group!!! It isn't supposed to be,
but apparently some lazy SpamCoppers have decided that they can't
be bothered to switch news servers from their main feeds to the SpamCop
feed so they signed up some intermediate system, whose name eludes me
at the moment, which receives all of our posts and archives them publicly
so that they can get all of their news in one stop.
This put all of us at risk for harvesting when posting here and personally I
think it was a pretty rotten thing to do.
So, don't assume that this is a closed group. Everyone now has access to
what is posted here!
