net etiquette/Newsgroup tip:
If you want to send the same message to more than one NG, CROSSPOST!
Some will argue that you not even crosspost do to the amount/type
of newsgroups that we have today.
As an example to post to "comp.os.linux.security", and
"comp.os.linux.hardware", use the following Newsgroups line:
You conserve resources on NNTP servers, and other readers
see the follow up answers and do not have to provide the same answer.
It makes it much harder to keep track of a discussion.
Also, once a reader has "read" a message in one group, they do
not have to see it again unless someone has provided a follow up.
See answer given to this post in the redhat group you posted to.
