The real question is, why hasn't anyone written a bot to automate this?
def inquisitionBot(host, port=119, user=None, password=None,
if not starttime:
starttime = time.localtime(time.time() - 60*60*24)
s = nntplib.NNTP(host, port, user, password)
resp, articles = s.newnews("comp.lang.python", \
time.strftime("%y%m%d", starttime), \
for articleID in articles:
resp, status, cmd, body = s.body(articleID)
if [line for line in body if \
line[:1]<>'>' and \
line.lower().count("i didn't expect the spanish inquisition")]:
# if I continue this someone might actually use it... :)
