Re: Identifying usenet poster by IP
You can guess by the message header what server it came from and report him
to this server's report-abuse address. However, there is rarely a point in
doing this: the spam has already been posted, and, although Usenet has
protocol to call a message off, it is rarely ever implemented on the
servers. It would then be on the server's admin discretion to go and
manually clean the NG, which is a hell of a task, so that rarely gets done
as well. That didn't sound too optimistic, did it?
Good luck with your anti-spam quest!
