Posts often take a "varied" path around the Usenet, often due to mostly
The only effective way to see where a post was from is to compare three
or more like posts for similar path entries, and if you add in the fact
that his Forgeries (for this batch) where all from "22.214.171.124"
(interbusiness.it), so it's reasonable to assume that Open Proxy is
also using a local news server (where it has valid access).
If "Dip Slime" was pre loading, which is quite likely, everything past
"!news.cs.interbusiness.it" in the path header would be there just to
cover his tracks.
