cross posting vs. multi posting ( both *APPEAR* to be widely accepted )

but depends upon the clique:

....I'd post more examples but...

....after doing a google search for "cross posting vs. multi posting"
it not only depends upon the group but upon the server? either way is
*NOT* widely accepted it seems as some "claim" because both pro and
con like to fly the "it is spam" banner to justify their position on
cross posting and or multi posting (which either they prefer)...

....I stand corrected!!!

....BUT if anyone didn't have the answer to my OP then simply say so or
better, just ignore the post!!!

Please don't crosspost.

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...TF-8%26hl%3Den
This one says that there are a number of people who prefer cross-posting to
multi-posting, and that some ISPs also don't like multi-posting.

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...TF-8%26hl%3Den

This one is by a person who acknowledges that cross-posting can be
appropriate, and who acknowledges as well that multi-posting *exists*.


http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...TF-8%26hl%3Den
This one doesn't say anything about the relative merits of cross- versus
multi-posting. The person he was responding to felt that multi-posting was
justified if the poster changed the wording each time to "make them more
topical for each group", but that's specious reasoning: after all, sending
essentially the same advertisement to 5,000 newsgroups, with special topical
wording in each one, is still an abuse.

http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...TF-8%26hl%3Den
This one doesn't express the writer's own opinion, just the same perception
you have that some groups prefer one and some prefer the other. The mere
fact that a person has a particular perception about a situation shouldn't
lead you to have the same perception. After all, if the person is wrong,
then you will be too.
http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=e...TF-8%26hl%3Den

This one acknowledges the existence of rules that cover the issues of both
kinds of posting, and says nothing about their respective merits or
deficits.

Not one of the posts you cited indicates a preference by anyone for
multi-posting. Logic indicates that that wouldn't make sense.

FWIW, the majority of posters on the newsgroups I post to find
multiposting abhorrent. Gratuitous crossposting, as this post was, is
also frowned on. I can't think of a sane reason to multipost, so I
view the practice with disdain.

Or plonk the poster.

no...it depends first on the post and the groups...someti mes it makes
sense to crosspost to a set of groups to allow a range of expertise to
discuss the subject...somet imes it makes sense to post different aspects
of a problem to different groups

what is always required is a bit of thought about how it will work for
everyone else before making the post...respecti ng other people is widely
accepted...maki ng rash assumptions and not thinking about other Usenauts
is generally considered harmful

Sounds like a conversation we had in our local newsgroups about top-
posting. And others I remember about binarys or language rules. I think the
answer I gave there would apply. Smaller and more "local" groups tend to
allow more leeway than larger international newsgroups.

I have an object that starts a thread to do a "process". One of the steps inside this thread launches 12 other threads via a Delegate.BeginInvoke to process. After these 12 threads are launched, the main thread waits. At the completion of each subthread, the mainthread checks all 12 thread objects to see if they are done. If they are, raise an event that says we're done. So, it's kinda like this: ProcessThread - Creates a ProcessObject
