General information about Porn4porn
Porn4porn used to spam through lynet; next they spamed through St.
Lawrence College, Ontario, CA but with the hostname obscured. Admins
at St. Lawrence seem to have disconnected them. Then they spamed through
sexzilla, leading me to believe that Porn4Porn and sexzilla are one and

A complete history may also be available.
- Only a small subset of usenet (261 groups) was sampled. Only
articles that hadn't been cancelled yet were counted. Actual
spam may have been much greater.
- Heuristics that detect single-posted articles are, by their very
nature, somewhat shaky. Innocent articles may be tagged as spam
because they share certain characteristics or keywords with
actual spam. In particular, a posted spam complaint that includes
the spam in its entirety will very often be identified as spam.
- Some posts may be forgeries intended to look like they came
- The first entry in the history file is not used to compute peak
or average spam counts, as this entry covers an unknown number of days.
This may cause an apparent disreprency between spam totals and spam
