I take it back, I found them. A couple came through from a Sim Zacks. I
actually wasn't following the thread which is why I didn't see them.
Good lord. 

I wonder if it would be possible to restrict the gateway so that if

The email headers I read show him also posting (not the real Sim Zacks
of course) to rec.skydiving and pgsql.general .
