    You have my full support here - I am just against banning such headers
    as they are not the problem as long as people don't peer the groups
    with others and feed the replies back into the list.

    Hmmm do I really have to say "me too" .....

    However a local private gateway which feeds things back to vger is not
    a problem, as long as it behaves. I must say that I do not consider a
    private gateway as a Usenet gateway.
