Over the past year, @Home Network has been the source of vast
quantities of Usenet spam. Despite countless complaints, reports,
and phone calls, @Home Network shows no inclination towards
stopping this ongoing abuse. By December, 1999, the situation
reached unconscionable levels of abuse.

Currently there is still a huge volume of EMP spam originating both
directly from @Home's @Home grown spammers and through the
countless open proxies to their news servers. These open proxies
present a very clear threat to the entire Usenet community at
large.

The data included in the following article shows a trend of
persistent and increasing abuse.

} Message-ID: <Pine.BSI.3.96.100010...@usr01.primenet.com>
} Followup-To: news.admin.net-abuse.usenet

Because of this lack of response to serious, ongoing problems, even
when they have been pointed out repeatedly, a full active Usenet
Death Penalty will go into effect at the close of business, 17:00
PST, on Tuesday, 18 January 2000 (19 Jan 2000 01:00:00 GMT).

Please see the Usenet Death Penalty FAQ,
<http://www.stopspam.org/usenet/faqs/udp.html>.

This action will affect all traffic posted to the @Home Network
news servers, having a Path stamp of *.*.*.home.com.POSTED.

It is sincerely hoped that @Home Network. will take appropriate
measures to stem the flow of abuse from their network before this
time. Any assistance which they may require will be gladly
provided.

Should this action become unavoidable, sites not wishing to
participate may alias out the pseudosite homeudp!.

Sites not wanting to participate in any active UDPs may alias out
the pseudosite !udpcancel!.
