Some time back, I (and others) were accused of participating in some
cross-posted threads. As that shouldn't have been possible given my
server's configuration (and I couldn't easily find evidence of it),
I opted to manually add a filter in my newsreader to automatically
discard posts that are crossposted (without caring about the
names of the other newsgroups involved --- legitimate or not).
Today, I glanced through the filter log and it appears there are many
threads which are perpetuating these cross posted flames.
Is this deliberate on the part of the parties involved (troll feeding)?
Or, are they just ignorant of their efforts (or actions that they can
take -- like filters -- to prevent it)?
