General information about Onlynews.com

Added 15 April 1999 due to the "pheremones" spammer. Spam consists of an advertisement for the web site "datemorewomen.com".

Currently (October 1999) hosting the "HipCrime" rogue canceller. The number of HipCrime posts are much higher than shown in this report -- most are cancelled are filtered by sites upstream of my monitoring site.

Onlynews has a real human answering the abuse address. I am informed that Onlynews runs cleanfeed. There shouldn't be much spam from this site.
