Hi folks,

just a quick note about cross-posting. We've had a few well-intentioned
(and some not so-well-intentioned) posts that have been cross-posted to most
or all newsgroups on our server recently.

The "beta" newsgroup is moderated and is for discussion of the current AW
beta only. All off-topic posts are deleted from that newsgoup.
Furthermore, it is not possible to delete a cross-posted post from just a
single newsgroup and leave it in all the others.

Thus, when I delete a cross-posted post from the beta newsgroup, it is
deleted from *all* newsgroups it was posted to.

So in the future if you could keep your cross-posting only to relevant
newsgroups, that will make my job easier and also mean that your posts have
a better chance of sticking around. ;)

Thanks,
Roland

Well, I just posted to the Beta Ng and I just found my post here in this NG
and I didn't send it in twice!?? Also, I get a message now saying that
the discussion NG isn't here anymore. Did I miss a post about that?

When you reply to a cross-posted message, your reply will be cross-posted
also by default. Being new to this, I didn't realize that until recently.
You "can" delete the groups you don't want it posted in from the destination
address before sending.
