    What happening is that you're still failing to crosspost.

    Justin, believe me when I say I find bad netiquette just as
    irritating as you do.

    But this person is not going to change. So you have a choice: Writer
    R5 in our kill files, or both Writer R5 _and_ you in our kill files.
    The decision is yours.

    why does this guy get so much flak here? It seems to me his posts are on
    topic, and the review site isn't bad at all.

    Oh man, you just made a terrible mistake with that statement. In a matter
    of minutes, Justin is going to give you "the why" of that question. Believe
    you me, you just started a big, drawn out, long ass thread that is not going
    to go anywhere. There will be some name calling, bashing and general
    negative type thoughts. Be prepared...oh yes...be prepared....its coming...

    Norm seems to have disappeared.....

    I will give you "in a nutshell" why Writer R5 gets so much flack. Basically
    his post are spam. Whether they are on topic or not...the post to his links
    are considered spam. Also...to add to the problem..he doesnt crosspost.

    Now, do I agree with him being spam? Not really. I quite enjoy his reviews
    personally. I have no problem with his post. He takes the time to do them
    and I take no offense to his post at all. Justin though, who spends 12 hrs
    per day on the computer, finds all his post spam. He is on a never-ending
    crusade, not to try to get Writer 5 to stop posting....but to try to get him
    to crosspost. It doesnt seem to be working though. I personally think he
    waste a lot of time with his post....but hey...we all have our burdens to
    bare.

    Whether he is spam or not.....its a never ending arguement. One that gets
    ugly now and then. Some ppl get pissed off at his post....others really
    dont care.

    Anyways...be warned....the storm is on the horizon.

    He's posting a link to a DVD review on two (gasp!) DVD newsgroups. It's
    really a stretch to consider that spam.

    Whether you like or dislike an article has nothing to do with
    whether it is spam. Spam is excessive multiple postings of the same
    or substantially the same article, regardless of content. It's in
    the net abuse FAQ, which I've posted before.

    No, he's posting substantially the same article many times a month
    to two newsgroups. THAT's why it's spam.

    I daresay even Justin would not find it worth commenting if one
    article were posted in duplicate to two newsgroups.

    He doesn't post the same article. He provides a different link to a
    different review.

    Mr. Brown said "substiantially the same article" -- not "the same article"
    -- and that's what they are. It meets the strict definition of spam. It's
    spam.

    By your interpretation. You realize that by including the word
    "substantially", you open up a whole new realm. One could argue that almost
    every post here is about "substantially" the same thing.

    No. His posts are completely devoid of any actual content other than "go
    to my website". They are nothing more than ads for his website. Try
    reading a few of them.

    Would you think it's ok if everyday I posted a list of what titles just
    arrived at amazon.com (with links using my affiliate id), or would you
    consider that spam? His posts are no different.

    Its funny.....and no offense....but the person who posted "whre has this
    newsgroup gone" (or something to that effect) is absolutely correct. So
    much time is spent on jumping on ppl for not supposedly using newgroups
    ettiquiete....or calling names...or whatever....that the whole purpose of
    this newgroup is just not there anymore.

    In answer to your question, yes, I would consider posting Amazon links
    spam...because that is led to a site that tries to profit from the sales of
    dvds....correct me if I am wrong (because I havent looked over WRiter R5's
    site with a fine tooth comb)...but he just seems to be posting reviews for
    the most part. As I said, from what I have seen. Correct me if there is
    something more. So no, I dont find that offensive. CAll me a "spam
    apologist" if you want (ala Justin), but Writer R5 doesnt bother me. Justin
    on the other hand is just plain annoying anymore. He wont let it go. In a
    nutshell, do what Mike ask, Killfile him and be done with it.
