Cross posters: The Remedy

Cross posters: The Remedy

Post by The Sanity Cruze » Fri, 15 Nov 1996 04:00:00

With the deluge of cross posters recently, a solution to the intrusion
is IMO desirable.  One way to do it is:

We reply to the posts.  But before sending our responses, we delete from the newsgroups being addressed.  That way, when
people respond, their responses will not come to our newsgroup, and
eventually the thread will drift away from us.  

Any better ideas?  

Now if we start seeing people from our newsgroup sending responses to about the United Nations or Cricket, we'll have to set
up some counseling sessions for them. 8-)
