5.Content related rules
1. Access rules
Main server is nntp.aioe.org and all people should choose it unless
those who perfectly know what they're doing. Another site, news://news.aioe..org,
which is much slower, is provided as backup host. Both servers
identify articles in each group with the same serial number so it's
possible with every newsreader to switch site without rebuilding a
news accounts from scratch.
Each IP address has the right to establish two concurrent connections
per time with 'news://nntp.aioe.org' or four connections with 'news://
news.aioe.org' which is slower. All IP addresses which make some
attempt to establish more than some dozen of concurrent connections
are banned forever.
Perpetual TCP connections are forbidden because they're expansive in
terms of system resources. All IP addresses which keep alive a TCP
connections with our server for more than 86400 seconds (a day) are
banned. Each IP address has got the right to establish about 400
connections per day even if the exact number of allowed connections
changes depending on the system load.
2. Posting rules
Each IP address - whether it’s your client, or your whole network -
has the right to post no more than 25 messages per day; accepted and
rejected messages are counted together. If an IP address sends more
than five articles that are rejected by the server, it looses the
right to post for the next 24 hours. Those who need to post an higher
number of articles should choose a server which uses some sort of
authentication, like eternal-september.org or Albasani.
Each article posted through our server must be smaller than 32KiB.
Aioe.org does not carry binary groups so this limit is very resonable
for probably all text articles. Headers must be smaller than 2KiB;
large headers are useless and waste system resources. We strongly
recommend our users to avoid the X-Faces header.
Articles which include a Content-type header which is not "text/plain"
are refused, so HTML and multipart posts are forbidden. Those who need
to sign their messages with a GPG/PGP key have to include the digital
sign in the body of the article without adding a special multipart
Each body line of an article must be shorter than 160 characters.
Quoted, blank and empty lines must be less than 80% of total body. A
quoted line begins with ">" or "|", a blank line contains only spaces
an empty one includes only a single newline ("\n") character. The
argument of the Date header must be correct. Often spammers send
messages with a future date in order to become visible in the top of
article list on clients which sort their groups by date; this implies
that sender's system clock has to be properly configured.
Articles can be posted to no more than five groups at once. There are
weak reasons to post to more than five groups at once and this is
often done by spammers. Articles that do not have a follow-up-to
header cannot be posted to more than three groups. Articles that do
have a follow-up-to header cannot have more than three groups in that
Control articles are always forbidden because many people use them as
an easy way to damage the server. Cancel articles are forbidden. If
you think before you post, you don’t need to cancel. Sporadic
accidents are usually tolerated by people s there's no need to
HTML articles of any sort are forbidden even if sent to groups that
allow the users to post HTML articles.
The ’From’ header must include a syntactically correct email address
(user@xxxxxxxxxx). It’s not mandatory to use a real name or email
3. TOR Network
TOR is a system intended to enable online anonymity, composed of
client software and a network of servers which can hide information
about users' locations and other factors which might identify them.
Use of this system makes it more difficult to trace internet traffic
to the user, including visits to Web sites, online posts, instant
messages, and other communication forms. Each time that an user
requests to establish a connection with an internet site through TOR,
the network assigns him a different IP which replaces the original
client's address when the remote server is queried. On a side, this
strategy makes each user anonymous because the remote site can't know
which real client is using that IP address in that time. On the other
side, this behaviour makes also impossible for a site which doesn't
use any authentication method to ban a specific TOR user from his host
because TOR clients change IP address each time that establish a
connection and a server without authentication can ban IP addresses
Due past large abuses which were impossible to block without banning
the whole network, currently TOR users can't post messages through
Aioe.org but they're still allowed to read the news through this
4. Suck feeds
Public news servers have got the main disadvantage to be slower than
commercial sites when a huge number of article is requested. Those who
need more speed often set up a local news server and configure an
external program to download the articles from a real remote news
server. This process is usually called suck feed. An online tutorial
explains how to setup it with suck. Aioe.org allows and encourage this
behaviour with the only limit of 400 connections per day. 5. Content
Our rules are simply: no abuses are tolerated. Some good guides about
USENET abuses are The Net Abuse FAQ, the news.admin.net-abuse.email
links, the USENET Spam FAQ and a Wikipedia page about USENET Spam.
Before writing, everybody should understand what is forbidden.
All users must must follow the USENET netiquette, a set of social
conventions that facilitate interaction over USENET. Many documents,
like Newsreaders.com netiquette explanation or USENET and Mailing List
posting netiquette or The Zen and the art of Internet chapter about
USENET, explain which behaviours are polite or unpolite when one
writes a USENET post. All users must read them before starting to post
Everybody should also consider that defamations and personal data
disclosures are crimes which are punished by criminal law. Freedom of
speech and user's privacy don't protect criminals from being punished
because system logs keep the sender's IP address of each message
posted through our site for six months and police departments can
legally obtain them in case of crimes.
