It's pretty clear to most what are undesirable files, but auto deleting makes for a quandary, since the posters will simply mimic legitimate posts, many already do, and boom you've just lost a bunch of legitimate material. It's akin to wishing that email spam would be 'dealt with ', except it's even tougher since usenet is a relatively small and less used part of the internet. It's designed to be uncensored, although of course it is somewhat, but heavy handed solutions aren't the best approach.

Surely Newsdemon/Astraweb/Giganews etc has control? Surely they can take control and monitor what is being posted - it can't be too difficult to identify files that have "get your password for this file here" text files attached to them?
