    Why? There is a perfectly adequate on posted weekly to
     news.admin.net-abuse.bulletins,
     news.admin.net-abuse.usenet,
     news.admin.net-abuse.sightings,
     news.admin.net-abuse.misc,
     news.answers

    called "FAQ: Current Usenet spam thresholds and guidelines" (all 162
    lines of it). By that document, this junk didn't hit the definition of
    spam, only because it was only spewed to a "few" groups. It's certainly
    going to hit the BI=20 threshold if posted again (it's at 13 in seven
    days by my count right now).

    The idiot posted the same articles to multiple newsgroups, without
    bothering to see if this was normal or on-topic for those groups, never
    mind setting a followup header. I also notice that he doesn't seem to
    have paid attention to earlier negative responses a week ago in the group
    'comp.security.firewalls' where it probably was somewhat closer to being
    on topic though equally unwanted. The fact that it seems to be a poorly
    written document incompetently "translated" isn't relevant to the _spam_
    issue though certainly relevant to the _abuse_ issue. But it's obviously
    a classic example of wasted bandwidth.

    He posted from a cable connection - hopefully Cox canceled his account
    for abuse complaints - ignoring the fact that the documents are seen
    world wide, and that some people don't have wide bandwidth connections,
    and that some people AND COMPANIES pay for the number of bytes received.
