It's kinda funny, back in the 90s Usenet was spammed every now and again
by various misconfigured BBS's running a Usenet gateway. Usually sending
all messages back from every group to every group. I thought BBS's are
fairly dead and Usenet is mostly gone too but apparently this downside
has made a comeback.
