Rather than posting to the *first*, perhaps arbitrarily selected group
in the newsgroups line, post *only* to *relevant* groups, as the
*first* on the newsgroups line may not be at all *relevant*. CROSS-
POSTING to *relevant* groups is not a sin, since any descent news-
server will carry only one copy of a crossposted article. SPAMMING is
sending to different newsgroups *separately*, which is a *bad* thing
wasting a lot of disk space, and also quite different from CROSS-
POSTING. So a better advice would be: Please stop CROSSPOSTING to
irrelevant groups. If you must reply, reply *only* to *relevant*
groups deleting irrelevant groups from the newsgroups line. Thanks,
