    Multiposting a 20 line message to several groups when the net is
    filled with petabytes of bit-torrents and DVD rips on the Usenet
    is certainly a major problem.

    As for the end recipient, multiposting will only cause him/her
    more /usage/ if s/he happens to visit all the groups involved
    and opens *every one* of the individual differently-ID'd
    messages *with the same header*, which IMHO is somewhat
    unlikely. So cross- or multi- makes no difference for the person
    who actually reads the posts - maybe even to possibly respond to
    one rather than engage in another bout of pointless "Usenet-
    rules" discussion.

    Someone who knows about these things should write a content-
    analyzer for Usenet text group discussions. Pointless bickering
    sure seems to be on the rise. Is it because deep down we all
    know MS have succeeded in making the computer into nothing more
    than another home appliance, Vista is not going away, and there
    is nothing relevant left to talk about?
