I can tell you this and let you decide
these replies to old posts I think are spam precursors
they are trying to get accepted into lists and thus bypass
spam detection later by fooling the lists/groups into whitelisting
they wait awhile then use most of the same data in the original
mail header and spam some group/maillist
replies help them with their deed
No, Usenet doesn't work that way. Maillists have
whitelists but spam filtering on Usenet uses more
sophisticated techniques (unless you use Google
Groups, who don't appear to do any spam filtering).
All that replying here does is make the poster look
a bit foolish if they didn't notice the date.
