... because it wastes usenet resources and interests, even
No matter what topic was being addressed, a poster could
conceivable post to a dozen groups every time if they only
followed the idea of posting to get most attention. The
result would be all groups swamped with posts and none of
them having the resources (people) willing to devote the
time to them all. There would be multiple redundant replies
on some and others not even answered. Put simply, it goes
against smooth function of usenet in general, especially for
basic topics or when posted to several goups.
