The forgeries you've seen in your news group are the product of an
entity collectively known as "Dippy" to "news.admin-net-abuse.email"
users. His attacks consists Posting Forgeries & Cross Posting to
random (often conflicting) newsgroups with the "Followup-To" header
set to NANAE. He's also been known to do direct attacks, by forging
a NANAE regular's email addresses in a "reactive" post to several
random news groups.
Because of this NANAE (and several regulars) have become flooded by
these "What The F***!" posts, none of which are as easily filtered
out as the tens of thousands of the Sporgeries a day we usually get
from this little Slimer.
If you reply to any of these posts you're just adding to this
distributed attack on our newsgroup:

No response to these forgeries is the best response; we do not want
to see them, and we're more then capable of filter out this "Dip Slime"
in our own group. So if you must respond to any of the posts, please
be kind, and only reply to the newsgroup you read it from.
Thank You.

They have been happening lately in a number of different newsgroups.
If you are not careful your reply ends up going to unintended places, which in turn spawns more forgeries, as well as clogs up others groups that seem to have been 'targeted'.
Just a word to the wise.
