Hi Dr. Norman, is there a 'place'
where this attack is being studied
and discussed?

Was it happening before this past
November?

There's a lot that can be discerned
with respect to it -- without even
trying to so-discern.

Like that there were 'msgs' being
addressed exclusively to 'b.n', but
that 'changed' during the 'night'
last 'night'  -- which, it's obvious,
could've happened because some
cross-posted legitimate msgs lin-
gured on in some servers' current
newsgroup images, and the 'bot'
is just walking-through those.

But I want to know when this
Sorrowful stuff =began=.

It's much like the 'flooding' of my
email account that occurred for
'years', and which, after having
long-endured it, I discussed, re-
iteratively, in long-former posts
here in 'b.n'.

I'd really like to know when the
newsgroup version of this part-
icular attack-"signature" =began=.

I understand that many forms of
'blindly'-automated abuse occurs
all over the Internet, but it's =this=
one that's forcibly-'erasing' most
of the stuff I'm working to do here
in 'b.n', =and= all of the Life-stuff
that I've been pouring-into the do-
ing of this work.

That's an Extreme-Offense that it is
easily-Verified will Negatively-ramify
across populations into the Future.

It's a Transgression against Human
Rights on a massive scale.

So, it's getting-my-attention.

The work I do is my Equivalent of
other folks' Families, Homes, Em-
ployments, Vocations and Avoca-
tions.

This'attack' is stripping all of that
=Everything= from my Living, and,
simultaneously, 'erasing' the use-
fulness of the understanding I've
been working to =share= with
folks from =their= Lives.

But there's one thing that's =really=
Funny about it.

It's an Embodiment of 'blind'-
automation -- 'the beast', "Ab-
stract Ignorance", right-there,
plain-to-see :-]

The other thing that may not be
obvious to most folks is that the
possibility that such 'blindly'-auto-
mated stuff is not blockable in
real 'time' is False.

So the mechanisms that can do
such real-'time'-blocking of such
'attacks' are, obviously, co-opera-
ting within this 'attack' -- which is
some of why I see it as a Serious-
Offense.

But I'd like to know when it began,
with means to explore that 'begin-
ning.

Is there a list of impacted news-
groups?
