[leafnode-list] old TODO: crosspost limiting seems broken
Hi Robert Marshall, Hi list,
there's an old item on the TODO list which I commented on:
2002-03-23 Robert Marshall on 2.0b8_ma9:
Changing subject slightly, I have a filters file containing
newsgroups = *
maxcrosspost = 6
action = kill
and I've just seen an article crossposted to 8 groups...
(cannot be reproduced. Note: "maxcrosspost = 6" still allows
6 groups, but not 7 groups or more).
Clemens: Robert, is it possible that the article in question had
one Newsgroups: item, but eight items in the Folloup-To: header?
I have been bitten by this when doing my crosspost limiter in
Lua. My fix is simple: count up all items in both headers and
limit on the sum. Unfortunately, this works only with Lua
