    Default Crossposting request

    Folks, I know it can happen by accident but please start checking posts for
    crossposting. We've all seen the recent influx of crossposting spammers
    that arrived with Brian Anasta. Mostly he adds rec.knives and we are
    flooding them with our replies to him then each other when we forget to
    remove the rec.knives.

    I added rec.knives and once you wade through all the spam (a lot of it!),
    there's a few rather nice sounding folks just trying to discuss their hobby.
    In fact, I may stay there to chat up good knives with them. Just have to
    adjust spam filteres as they have a small but determined group of
    crossposting spammers like Krypsis etc.

    Thanks for the heads up that he doesn't originate from rec.knives. I
    went to ukf+d when their trolls invaded rfc and decided to stay.
    They're a nice group of people over there too - after you adjust your
    kill filters a tad.

    Same here. Sometimes a troll trying to hard a group or stir stuff up,
    backfires.

    BTW, there are as best as I can tell 2 'Krypsis' and I should have said
    that. 'Krypsis' is either the removal of godhood divinity from Jesus, or a
    Japanese anime character.

    I warned everyone right from the start it was going to cause trouble.

    Which is why I killfiled it there and then.

    If ever I *do* crosspost (deliberately), it's to another food group that I
    think would benefit.

    Might see you over there ;-)

    I'm a Gerber and Kershaw fan.
