to know your opinions about the topics of adoption and safety of new
energy related technology, and your opinion about Kyoto Protocol
related media issues. Your answers will produce valuable information

As thanks for your participating in our survey, we will offer four
screen savers for the interviewees who complete the questionnaire. The
screen savers will be available for download on the final page of the
questionnaire. They include the photos of BMW H2R hydrogen vehicle,
BMW hybrid car, Honda hybrid cars 2001-2006 and Honda fuel cell

Not a chance, since you have misused usenet by multiposting this.
I could have forgiven a cross-post with follow-ups set, but not
this.

Please don't reply to these, they never read the responses and news
servers can filter them out. The first many here will have seen of this
spam is your response.

<OTOn what basis would a news server filter this message? I can't
imagine any that wouldn't filter a lot of desirable messages.

I suppose one could just filter on google groups - I've sometimes
considered it :-)

If the server, or something else, detects that the same article has
been posted to a large number of newsgroups, it can mark it as spam
and filter it out on that basis.

Some years ago, when I still paid attention to this stuff, some people
were running scanners that would automatically detect spam and issue
advisory cancellations that would be honored by some (but not all)
servers. I don't know what the current state of affairs is. Anyone
who's curious should check news.admin.net-abuse.usenet.

We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.

I'm not sure, but news.individual.net did.

That certainly would keep the noise down!

I suppose, but that route seems pretty tricky, and easy to circumvent.

That might be the answer. There are still such services available.
Spamcop.net is one.

The same message multiposted many times, seems easy to filter. NIN
certainly did.
