I've now denied *.dip0.t-ipconnect.de (which is one of the largest
ISPs in Germany) access to the Gmane news server, since somebody there
is apparently leaking Gmane control messages onto Usenet.
The paths are typically:
So they seem to be injecting stuff at news.khms.westfalen.de, and
I've been unable to contact anybody there.
And I'm tired of getting questions from conscientious news admins who
wonder what all these control messages are about.
(If somebody else is able to rectify this situation, I'll remove the
ban, of course.)
(domestic pets only, the antidote for overdose, milk.)
