OK, let's assume that you still want to send your message to several
groups. (Sometimes there could be a reason.)

You might compose a message, using your favorite program, and post it to
one group. Then you could, depending on the program you use, just edit
the line that contains the group name and repost, or use some other
method of sending messages with identical content as separate postings.
This means multiposting: several copies of the text are sent, as
separate messages, within different message identifiers and with no
connection to each other as far as the Usenet techniques and protocols
are considered. This is the completely wrong way.

Everyone who reads both groups will see your article twice, with no
obvious indication of seeing something they had already seen. If you
used crossposting, most newsreaders would show the article once only to
each reader (and even people using other newsreaders would be able to
easily see that it's a crossposted article).

You are officially obbessed now arent you? Well, I have to hand it to you,
there is certainly no lack of trying (on your part) to get him to not
crosspost.

Do you yet realize that you spend far more time making these replies
than if you simply ignored his posts, or better yet killfiled him?

Sure I do. Do you not realise that that's not the point?

Whatever the point is, I think if these guys want people to read their
reviews, they should just post them here, instead of posting a link to
their buggy, pop-up-window-laden websites. I never bother going to their
sites, and the few times I have, I didn't find their reviews to be
particularly interesting. At least if they'd post excerpts from their
reviews, they might attract more traffic.

Oh, I know you have a point. It's a real important one, too.

You could just ignore it

Sorry, had to say it.

Besides, it's 30 seconds of my time that I am willing to spend.
