    Reference paganini.bofh.team - are there coming on-topic posts? in news.admin.net-abuse.usenet

    Maybe that is why people have dropped you.

    I believe we are still peers and I see no reason to until a bunch of
    news admins email me and persuade me, for the better of usenet, to drop
    the feed.

    Has anybody found a way to run a server without relying on peers?
    IMO to rely on peers is a recipe for disaster because they all have
    different policies to censor posts. My posts are censored by almost
    all servers on this planet <span class="moz-smiley-s1"><span>:-)</span></span>
    am I bothered about this/ NO; I'm just smiling about the hypocrisy
    of administrators of these news-servers. They allow nutters to post
    complete crap (e.g. alt.free.newsservers) but real problem solving
    emails on Windows newsgroups (10 and 11) are not allowed. The
    premium servers are better in this respect. If people have problems
    about certain posts then they should use the kill-file feature of
    their newsreader but there is no point in censoring ANY posts
    unless, the post is defamatory, slanderous or promoting illegal
    activity.<br>
    <br>
    There is nothing wrong to ask people to watch out for Dictator Putin
    so that he can be arrested when he leaves Russia but free
    news-servers won't allow this. We need to expose the stupidity of
    Angela Merkel to stop Ukraine from joining NATO when she was
    Chancellor of Germany. We know she is a product of German Nazi
    having been born in Eastern Germany but now she should have changed,
    but she hasn't.<br>

    Sorry for the outburst, but when it's needed it's needed.

    If that was my post, I would like to apologize, it wasn't my intention.
    It was just a general question and in case of abuse I emailed you - you
    also replied, which is great.
    If I see any abuse, I will tell you.
    One point would be to enable that the IP of the poster is being shown.
    This would make it easier to block certain people, but will give
    everyone this information.
    It is up to you if you like to enable that.

    I simply noticed that I never saw a regular "normal" post (on-topic, no
    flame, no name forgery, no trollpost) from paganini.bofh.team, although
    I only read a small amount of Usenet.

    I sometimes create kill files when something annoys me and then I
    remove entries after some time, especially if they cover a lot and maybe
    also interesting posts.

    I didn't do that for paganini, but I did that for Mixmin. Mixmin didn't
    cared about abuse at all.

    What you say is breaking my heart, for some reason's.
    My dead peer's it's for a simple reason: the admin closed the server (8 case's). In little case don't respond (1 ISP and 1 private server). The
    rest no longer support Usenet (14/15 ISP's and private server's, they
    word's).
    And when u asked for a feed I didn't back down and offered my help. And
    for the same reason also on NANAU I replied to those who asked the
    questions, and I keep track of what happens every day, I'm not one of
    those administrators who set up the server, and then don't care about
    anything and let it go on its own .
    I tried every day to follow the progress of usenet, and if any abuse is committed up to remedy. But obviously complaining about it in a usenet
    group without sending an email to the administrator also seems useless
    to me (I have always replied to the emails that arrive and ask for clarifications or asking to remedy some problem).
    I currently have several user's, and viewing _all_ the posts made is
    something humanly not possible, and that's why I rely on filters and
    bot's to help me with this, unfortunately this is not enough.
    I hope people open the headers of the posts that come from my server,
    look at the header where my email is indicated, and contact me
    indicating that there is a problem, then of course it's up to me to fix it.

    But to say that my server is pure shit, without obviously contacting me
    is also malice.
    Sorry for the outburst, but when it's needed it's needed.

    Sincerely

    So has the Holy Roman Transarchy and Church of Wokeism moved its
    censorship machine onto Usenet? Are they going to act out a kabuki
    theatre show about gradually "cracking down" on trolls and "Nazis"?

    The real motive is not "Nazis" but rather silencing dissent.

    Stay strong Ivo. Don't knuckle under to the Transarchy. They want
    power--any dishonest and posturing way they can get it. Deny them that.

    Hi Marco! oh no, absolutely, it is your full right to ask those
    questions and is my duty to answer you. My outburst was aimed at other
    people.


    One point would be to enable that the IP of the poster is being shown.
    This would make it easier to block certain people, but will give
    everyone this information.


    Short answer: At present no. For various reason. But you can use other
    way to block them (for example the Path: header, or other X-header present).

    Long answer: My politics have always been "almost" the same as the
    philosophy that led Tim Skirvin to create free.*. You are free to do
    what you want, as long as this right doesn't infringe on someone else's
    right to do the same. I also always try to enforce common civic sense
    and the rules of common coexistence.
    I use for my server "postfilter", a software written in perl that does
    several things. It was maintained by Aioe (Paolo Amoroso), but I have no
    idea if he is the official creator. I think the credits belong to
    someone else. I am expanding its functionality. Among these there is
    also the fact of saving the logs and the crypt of some information
    (which is still saved on my server unencrypted). I have already
    collaborated with some police forces who have asked me for information
    (which, however, did not go far as they are Tor exit-nodes). Also right
    now I'm working on implementing a hidden service, so that Tor users can
    post directly without going through exit nodes, and other changes and improvements, stay tuned.


    I didn't do that for paganini, but I did that for Mixmin. Mixmin didn't
    cared about abuse at all.

    Great ;) I hope it stays that way for the future.

    Sorry you feel that way, but as I said, I have no intention of dropping
    any of my peers unless I get a lot of complaints and so far, I've had 0 complains about any of my peers from anyone, so we're all good.

    Of course, the post I refer to is just one person's opinion and not
    necessarily that of all usenet admins and/or users and I should have
    stated that. We're all good as far as I'm concerned and have no issue
    peering with you.

    I post in Dutch language groups via paganini.bofh.team
