Can you stop crossposting? And if there is really, really a need to
crosspost, can you please set the follow-up to?

Which is enough to disrupt those groups for days.

Thanks Xah. Like I wrote, your site /does/ have good information, it's
so sad that you somehow think it's necessary to spam Usenet to get
visitors. Or maybe you've another reason, don't know. But it /is/ Usenet

Well, you annoy me, I annoy you. It's in your hands to make it stop.

My advice is:

 1) remove all the excessive swearing from your site. If you have a
    point, you don't need it. Your argument(s) without the swearing
    should speak for themselves

 2) Stop abusing Usenet. Instead focus on writing more good stuff on
    your site.

1) & 2) will keep me from linking to your site, ever. And I am sure I am
not alone in this.
