    Followup-spamming (following up to different posts, repeatedly
    adding
    the same text). Or as the Spam Thresholds FAQ puts it, "articles
    which
    consist of inclusions of other user's postings, but are otherwise
    identical".

    The articles listed here all consist of exactly:

    - a quote in full of another post (with or without headers)
    - a signature (always the same)
    - no other additional content

    Earthlink: please deal appropriately with your user.

    20 articles were cancelled in 20 groups. The Breidbart Index was

    I will be more than glad to

    completely out of
    other groups unrelated -as I have for three years.

    You've preached your brand of astro-fraud and tried to scare
    off
    your critics. You haven't discussed anything. You are greatly
    lacking
    in integrity.

    1) For what sort of discussions is alt.astrology intended?

    Answer: Alt.astrology is intended as a forum for astrologers of
    all levels of expertise, from beginners to advanced, to discuss
    astrological topics.

    Alt.astrology is *not* intended as a forum for disbelievers to
    voice their contempt for astrologers or to harass astrologers
    about their belief in astrology and demand of them scientific
    proof. Groups discussing the scientific validity of theories are
    prefixed with "sci." If you wish to discuss the validity of
    astrology as a discipline (as opposed to the validity of specific
    theoretical statements within the domain of astrology), the
    appropriate group on which to post is sci.skeptic. Here is the
    statement of purpose for that group:

    "Sci.skeptic is for those who are skeptical about claims of
    the paranormal to meet with those who believe in the paranormal.
    In this way the paranormalists can expose their ideas to
    scientific scrutiny, and if there is anything in these ideas
    then the skeptics might learn something."

    Sci.skeptic often contains long discussions of scientific
    evidence for and against specific astrological hypotheses, and
    such discussion is welcome in that group. Further, many members
    of that group are qualified to evaluate scientific evidence. The
    astrologers in this group who enjoy participating in such
    discussion with skeptics read and post to sci.skeptic.

    1) For what sort of discussions is alt.astrology intended?

    Answer: Alt.astrology is intended as a forum for astrologers of
    all levels of expertise, from beginners to advanced, to discuss
    astrological topics.

    Alt.astrology is *not* intended as a forum for disbelievers to
    voice their contempt for astrologers or to harass astrologers
    about their belief in astrology and demand of them scientific
    proof. Groups discussing the scientific validity of theories are
    prefixed with "sci." If you wish to discuss the validity of
    astrology as a discipline (as opposed to the validity of specific
    theoretical statements within the domain of astrology), the
    appropriate group on which to post is sci.skeptic. Here is the
    statement of purpose for that group:

    "Sci.skeptic is for those who are skeptical about claims of
    the paranormal to meet with those who believe in the paranormal.
    In this way the paranormalists can expose their ideas to
    scientific scrutiny, and if there is anything in these ideas
    then the skeptics might learn something."

    Sci.skeptic often contains long discussions of scientific
    evidence for and against specific astrological hypotheses, and
    such discussion is welcome in that group. Further, many members
    of that group are qualified to evaluate scientific evidence. The
    astrologers in this group who enjoy participating in such
    discussion with skeptics read and post to sci.skeptic.

    Followup-spamming (following up to different posts, repeatedly
    adding
    the same text). Or as the Spam Thresholds FAQ puts it, "articles
    which
    consist of inclusions of other user's postings, but are otherwise
    identical".

    The articles listed here all consist of exactly:

    - a quote in full of another post (with or without headers)
    - a signature (always the same)
    - no other additional content

    Earthlink: please deal appropriately with your user.

    ****** ANSWERS ******

    1) For what sort of discussions is alt.astrology intended?

    Answer: Alt.astrology is intended as a forum for astrologers of
    all levels of expertise, from beginners to advanced, to discuss
    astrological topics.

    Alt.astrology is *not* intended as a forum for disbelievers to
    voice their contempt for astrologers or to harass astrologers
    about their belief in astrology and demand of them scientific
    proof. Groups discussing the scientific validity of theories are
    prefixed with "sci." If you wish to discuss the validity of
    astrology as a discipline (as opposed to the validity of specific
    theoretical statements within the domain of astrology), the
    appropriate group on which to post is sci.skeptic. Here is the
    statement of purpose for that group:

    "Sci.skeptic is for those who are skeptical about claims of
    the paranormal to meet with those who believe in the paranormal.
    In this way the paranormalists can expose their ideas to
    scientific scrutiny, and if there is anything in these ideas
    then the skeptics might learn something."

    Sci.skeptic often contains long discussions of scientific
    evidence for and against specific astrological hypotheses, and
    such discussion is welcome in that group. Further, many members
    of that group are qualified to evaluate scientific evidence. The
    astrologers in this group who enjoy participating in such
    discussion with skeptics read and post to sci.skeptic.

    1) For what sort of discussions is alt.astrology intended?

    Answer: Alt.astrology is intended as a forum for astrologers of
    all levels of expertise, from beginners to advanced, to discuss
    astrological topics.

    Alt.astrology is *not* intended as a forum for disbelievers to
    voice their contempt for astrologers or to harass astrologers
    about their belief in astrology and demand of them scientific
    proof. Groups discussing the scientific validity of theories are
    prefixed with "sci." If you wish to discuss the validity of
    astrology as a discipline (as opposed to the validity of specific
    theoretical statements within the domain of astrology), the
    appropriate group on which to post is sci.skeptic. Here is the
    statement of purpose for that group:

    "Sci.skeptic is for those who are skeptical about claims of
    the paranormal to meet with those who believe in the paranormal.
    In this way the paranormalists can expose their ideas to
    scientific scrutiny, and if there is anything in these ideas
    then the skeptics might learn something."

    Sci.skeptic often contains long discussions of scientific

    such discussion is welcome in that group. Further, many members
    of that group are qualified to evaluate scientific evidence. The
