No cross posts, no moderation

OK, so my one-newsgroup rule would not get rid of the PROFESSIONAL
spam, e.g.:

> From: ogymiramar_a at ppp.com(ogyMiramar Associates)
> Newsgroups: bionet.virology
> Subject: ogy...Renters .... Buy a Home with No $$ Downogy
> Date: 9 Mar 1996 02:58:34 GMT
> Organization: adnc.com

, which is posted to each newsgroup separately. But at least this sort 
of thing does not lead to Threads That Will Not Die, because it doesn't 
combine replies from a zillion newsgroups.

Cross posting is like spamming for beginners.
