Usenet II

We are running a full usenet2 compliant system and exchange a usenet2 feed with several sites. See above for list of usenet2 feeds.

Spam

We are running cleanfeed.

We are also running perl-nocem to process NoCeM notices on our news reader server. This does not prevent excess spam from being routed to our various peers, but this does prevent our users from seeing it.

Miscellaneous info

This is almost newsbone-compliant ... well not that much ... so remarks are welcome.
