  1. Hey, folks. Could we all do the newsgroup cleanup folks at Microsoft a
    favour and NOT reply to spam, virus, and excessive crosspost/multipost
    messages? Both Colin and I can, and will, notify the appropriate folks at MS
    whenever we see one. But if it's replied to, it makes the cleanup harder and
    makes it less likely that it will get off of all the servers it may end up
    on. Just ignore them, please. I know we seem to be getting a few more than
    we used to, but as the saying goes "this too shall pass". It's a matter of
    getting the spam filters caught up to the latest round of gunk.

    Thanks!

    Agreed and anyone who clicks on a link in one of those is asking for
    trouble.
