Server Spam At Bottom Of Messages

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Blinky the Shark, Sep 25, 2007.

  1. I've got some guy in another group claiming that no servers ever add
    promos for themselves beneath the sigs of their users -- because he's
    never seen them.

    I would not be alone in here in knowing that some feeds certainly do
    just that. Notice how cleverly I worded that so's not to set off the
    "there is no we/us" troopers. :) I've told the guy that it's done, and
    he's gonna come back and argue from his perspective of surprisingly
    limited experience. So help me out, here, eh? I know they're seen
    here, but I can't remember what servers they're from so I don't know
    what to search on to come up with a couplethree Message-ID headers to
    throw at him. Which ones do that?

    IIRC, EasyNews is one.

    Ha!

    You are correct, sir!

    And, what is worse is that 'free' teranews is not free but commercial
    and is also a poorly administered newsserver and the advertising trailer
    also breaks most sig trimmers and because most text newsers could get a
    much better deal buy buying an economical non-expiring block than paying
    tera anything for the privilege of dragging around the ugly/obnoxious
    sig-breaking usenet spamvertisement.

    You're not wrong either:

    "Posted via a free Usenet account from http://www.teranews.com"

    is their tag. They usually have the string teranews in their MIDs if that
    helps to find them ...

    Here is an email from an ancient free netzero.com account of mine to a
    verizon.net account of mine. I changed all instances of my account
    names to "censored".

    I dunno what happens if you get a pay account but at least the free
    accounts add "server spam". I assume the same is true of juno.com
    which is the same company. I've seen "server spam" on other webmail
    accounts. (Netzero gives access to POP3 and probably SMTP if you pay.)
    Way back when I used Netzero for free 10-hours-a-month dial-in with
    banners, as an alternative to my main dial-in account, I did have
    access to SMTP and they did have a server banner like the one below.

    Their 'free' service is free. They make a one off registration charge
    and after that there is no more to pay. The have a full paid for
    service which I understand is quite good.

    The 'sig' has just appeared in the last couple of years. Wasn't there
    when I registered with them.

    Unfortunately they can't get a better deal unless it is free or the
    registration charge is lower than that of Teranews which ISTR is about
    £2 or they can pay the same and get more bandwidth.

    Otherwise I agree. It's poorly maintained and loses posts like a
    baggage handler at Heathrow :(

    $3.95 'one-time' is not free. A text newser can buy 10 non-expiring
    gigs of news for $5, which would last them a lifetime (one time) and is
    a much much better deal.

    > The 'sig' has just appeared in the last couple of years. Wasn't there
    > when I registered with them.


    Correct. Teranews misrepresents the 'baggage' which the registrant is
    going to be burdened with in addition to the registration fee. Tera
    should state upfront that the 'cost' of the $4 account is $4 plus
    advertising trailer -- many text newsers would either use a better free
    newsserver or buy a non-expiring block instead of giving $4 to tera for
    an account which is 'unusable'.

    The burden of the condition of the sig-busting trailer is that a text
    newser's posts are found to be objectionable, so fellow text newsers
    harangue the teranews poster until they quit using it.

    The 'good news' about tera is that the $4 registration allows you up to
    50 megs of binary dl/s per day and unlimited uploading including
    binaries. The bad news is the ad trailer and frequent server problems.

    > Otherwise I agree. It's poorly maintained and loses posts like a

    I highly recommend an alternate newsserver. There are plenty of free
    ones depending on your needs. Some carry binaries but don't allow
    posting. Some are text only, no binaries, with posting. If I were
    going to recommend an alternate newsserver to someone, it wouldn't be
    tera for text or binaries, for downloading or posting/uploading.

    Tera's big idea about 'publicity' is to brand themselves as a poorly
    admin/ed newsserver which misrepresents itself and is a bad netizen.

    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. 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.

    Leythos - (remove 999 to email me)

    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/index.php/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'.
