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. -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
