Please check the "Reply-to" line in the header of newsgroup messages
before replying.  Also the "To" line in your browser's message
composition window.

The message you replied to had the reply-to set to
news.admin.net-abuse.email.  Why?  That is the latest tactic of an
internet vandal who calls himself Hip Crime.  For a long time he has
been waging a denial of service attack against that newsgroup.  Lately,
he posts thousands of inflammatory messages all over the newsgroups,
with the reply-to set to his despised newsgroup.  All the irate
responses go there.
