Mozilla sould NOT prohibit Cross-Posting. Cross-Posting is not forbidden by GNKSA and is in some cases very usefull. It is not even required to pop up a warning dialogue when cross posting, but that might be an acceptable alternative. At a maximum, Mozilla might want to prohibit cross posting to more than 10 newsgroups, but definetely no less. This will stop *massive* sapamming, but will allow for useful cross posting. We will never be able to eliminate spam, but let's not turn off the good users who need this featurew occasionally.

See also bug 27768. Adding dependency on bug 35338. Peter, is 35338 what you're seeing? That is, what sort of cross-posting are you trying to do exactly?
Depends on: 35338
Not only is the ability to crosspost not forbidden by the GNKSA, it is in fact required by the GNKSA (3a). So, this blocks bug # 76449.
We don't prohibit it normally, but something has regressed and bug 35338 is the bug that covers our overzealous blocking of cross-posting. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 35338 ***
