    Looks like some of us at least never saw it in the first place until seeing
    it in your post about it.

    Nope I never saw it either...and if I did I would simply bypass it
    altogether and turn a blind eye, let alone draw attention to it.

    I didn't see it either, I'm thinking maybe he replied to the wrong group.

    Nope, it get in the group and a few others as well.

    From what I can tell, it got into ihugs server from mine who got it
    from a new site who needs to be a bit more careful of who the talk to
    but it might have been from one of their upstream sites as well.
    Once it hit ihug it found its way to at least as well and
    I'm not sure how far it got before a cancelbot found it and killed it.

    Since I'm going to have to track this leak down, does anyone have the
    original that didn't go through abnormal, ihug or ttsg?

    There is a path like like this:

    Some of the path line is forged and I need to find out how far back.
    I expect its before but a few more Path lines
    would help. Meanwhile, I think its time to take netvigator out
    of the list of sites that can post.

    I didn’t see it, but I do block cross-posted messages that are posted to
    more than a total of two groups. Maybe the spam was cross-posted.

    Keith should have replied to the original message without changing the
    subject and stated that it was spam and didn’t belong here. He should have
    also made a point of not quoting the original details. Thanks to Keith a
    lot more of us have seen the spam then would have otherwise.

    My comment on the whole matter:

    How many posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

    1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

    14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

    7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

    1 to move it to the newsgroup

    2 to argue then move it to the rec.electricity newsgroup

    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

    5 to flame the spell checkers

    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct

    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum

    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

    36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's

    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

    4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

    bulb could have been changed differently
    bulb" is perfectly correct

    The current term within the industry is "luminaire" :)

    Newfangled rubbish, I like "globe" myself, but the I like to listen to the
    "wireless" :)

    The term luminaire includes the housing fixture reflector and base and any
    attached lenses and or diffusors, at least it does with cinematic and
    theatrical luminaires.
    You can get luminiares without bulbs, just carbon rods.

    where the bit where a) a bunch of posters resort to personal abuse,
    citing prior examples of personal abuse in other threads and other
    newsgroups. b) spin off threads with the same title, but discussing
    something totally different, like the effect of streetlighting on
    backyard astronomy.
