AngleWyrm, I strongly suspect that the garbage has *not* come from
Kenneth at all.

The headers of Kenneth's article on my newsserver include:

    Path: news.fore.com!uunet!ash.uu.net\
         !news-feed01.roc.ny.frontiernet.net\
         !nntp.frontiernet.net!nntp.giganews.com.MISMATCH\
         !border1.nntp.dca.giganews.com!nntp.giganews.com\
         !newsfeed.stueberl.de!news-out.tin.it!news-in.tin.it\
         !news.cs.interbusiness.it!newsfeed.kabelfoon.nl\
         !news.glorb.com!wn13feed!worldnet.att.net\
         !bgtnsc04-news.ops.worldnet.att.net.POSTED!53ab2750\
         !not-for-mail

It appears that either frontiernet.net or giganews.com (I would guess
at the former) spotted that the article didn't come from where it
claimed to have done.

A quick (reverse) scan of that path suggests that (if it is true) the
article started off in the USA, then made its way to Holland, then to
Italy, then to Germany, then back to the USA.

I guess such a routing is *possible*, but I think it more likely that
everything from "nntp.giganews.com.MISMATCH" downwards is bogus.

Try Googling for "HipCrime" or "Dipslime" - news.admin.net-abuse.email
is getting all sorts of crud ATM.

HTH
