we are also plagued by a forger who also uses multiple
and/or an org trying to destroy this uncensored source
Take a look at talk.politics.misc
It's spammed-up solid with 670 spam posts and they're still coming in...
I think I've analyzed their attack strategy ...
Neodome, love it or not, is about the last free NNTP portal with
a decent selection of groups. The attack is like what you often
see on mail servers - an automated flood from a different IP
address every time - but in this case aimed at a narrow subset
of "political" groups ... ones that often host un-Woke content
(like YOU, byker).
I suspect the plan is to force Neodome, and maybe others, to
REMOVE these groups entirely.
They COULD rate-limit posts, but you can only get away with
that to a certain degree. Neodomes best defense is to simply
drop these political groups. Then the attackers will move on
to another set, and another, and another. With the high-$$$
cyberattacks currently, no org or govt is going to bother
tracking down a usenet spammer. The attacker could be
some 11-year-old living in Indiana posting through some
If this goes on, the only response would be similar attacks
on pro-Woke favorite groups. Alas that would be the end
of usenet for all intents and purposes - something the left
would very much like to see.
Hmm ... in theory a "nonsense" quasi-AI filter could be
devised. Nonsense posts will be linguistically different
from normal language. Totally different word and
phrase frequency. There are ways around even that,
but it's harder.
