Teranews is well known to be a spamming NSP. They, at least, put
their spam within a legit signature. I believe Newsfeeds is the same
but they do NOT put their spam in a signature (i.e., there is no
sigdash delimiter line before their spam).

Tell the other user that he configured his NNTP client to hide
signatures. Regardless of what he sees, that doesn't affect what you
see. When reporting a defect on a product that I was testing, I've
had developers tell me that the product works on their host. So I
tell them, great, go package up their host and we will send it to the
customer. Turned out they had DLLs as a result of installing a SDK
that customers would not have. It is irrelevant that it works on
their host as that has no effect on preventing failure on someone
else's host.

Congratulate the other user that they don't have to be bothered
looking at the signatures, most of which are just ego-stroking fluff.

Thanks, and especially thanks given the handicap.

Thanks. But as "I know they're seen here" and "a couplethree Message-ID
headers to throw at him" show, I'm looking for news server ad sigs.

A couple have been provided, so I'm all set.

That's the first mention I've seen of newsfeeds. Thanks!

I'll mention that. Good catch.

Many non-ISP servers at "spam" or sales pitches to the bottoms of users
posts for Usenet, some may do it for web interfaces also.

Fight exposing kids to porn, complain about sites like PCBUTTS1.COM that
create filth and put it on the web for any kid to see: Just take a look
at some of the FILTH he's created and put on his website:
http://forums.speedguide.net/archive.../t-223485.html all exposed
to children (the link I've include does not directly display his filth).
You can find the same information by googling for 'PCBUTTS1' and
'exposed to kids'.
