It's HipCrime, who does this sort of thing all the time. Google has
archived thousands of these rogue cancels all originating from
126.96.36.199 on December 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 29, 30, &
I would first try complaining to abuse at ozemail.com.au , & then if the
rogue cancels continue after that date, to the newsfeeds propagating
the rogue cancel forgery floods to the rest of Usenet, as shown on the
Path line. For example, for the header above, one would complain to
concentric.net, home.com, look.ca, etc. If the abuse still continues
after that, these newsfeeds should be asked to block Ozemail entirely
until it demonstrates itself to be a responsible ISP.
