I'm running a mail2news gateway that gates the NetBSD mailing lists to
Munichs's more or less local newsgroups muc.lists.netbsd.*. Since these
groups are moderated and the moderator's addresses are the mailing lists
themselves, "Spamking"'s article was not posted locally (at
hollyberry.com), but was forwarded to the portable-ppp mailing list, which
forwarded the article (besides others) to my site, where the article
finally got into the Usenet.
I changed the gateway configuration, so that Newsgroups headers in the
original mails are now ignored (I should have done that in the first
I'm currently trying to get a copy of the original mail.

BTW: This spam has been posted in 11 articles to 365 newsgroups. "Spamking"
seems to be wellknown. Please refer to news.admin.net-abuse.* for more
information and discussion.
