How so, TECHNICALLY? What is "broken"?

Ignoring common practice because you can't or won't
or are too lazy or cheap or stupid to get a decent newsfeed does not
make you correct.

Nor does name calling make you correct. If you can give a legitimate
technical reason (and "Test groups are venerable and well-established" is
not a legitimate technical reason) that my system is broken, then do so.

It makes you a jackass.

Oh, I see, you want to try to intimidate me, by into giving up the freedom
I have of configuring my system the way that best meets my needs, the needs
of my family and the needs of my business without giving any real technical

There is also no RFC that requires a poster to post test
messages to "test" groups.

There's no rulebook for a lot of things in life.

That is correct, so why are you so emphatic about telling me how to run MINE
and the systems *I* have? I have the FREEDOM to run my systems the way I
see fit within the standards spelled out in the RFCs. IF TEST MESSAGES FROM
MY SYSTEM BECOME A PROBLEM (as off yet, I can not see where anyone is

And what makes YOU correct? A thing called "netiquette"? If you take a look
at the document I responded to, you would find that it is a lecture on
"netiquette" that is deceptively labled as a FAQ. How is deceptively
labeling a post good "netiquette"? But the fact of the matter is,
MESSAGES. If you can point out how my system had been sending out a
disturbing number of "test" posts to non-test groups, then, please do so.
