 bincancel:26 large binaries:AR475:@@NCM

Large binary posts do not belong in unmoderated discussion groups.

I run a program that searchs for, and issues advisory cancels for,
large binaries in the akr, biz, comp, misc, news, rec, and sci

I have issued 26 cancels for large binary files (average size 140,514
characters - total size 3,653,356 characters) posted to 14 different
unmoderated discussion groups in the comp and rec hierarchies as
   4 rec.models.rockets
   2 rec.models.scale
   2 rec.models.rc.water
   2 rec.models.rc.misc
   2 rec.models.rc.air
   2 rec.models.railroad
   2 rec.arts.manga
   1 rec.arts.sf.starwars.misc
   1 comp.sources.wanted
   1 comp.lang.misc

This pointer is being posted to each affected group listed above.
Follow-ups are directed to

If you want to see exactly which file was deleted from a particular
group, read the full report in  The
full report can also be found in alt.nocem.misc and alt.retromod.
Look for AR475 in the subject, or, if your reader supports it, use

The criteria used to search for this batch of large binaries were:
   NEWSGROUPS: Unmoderated akr, biz, comp, misc, news, rec, or sci
               (except for comp.binaries.apple2, comp.bugs.2bsd,
   BINARY: base64, binhex, uuencode, and xbtoa encoded files, etc.
   SIZE: > 100,000 characters [(size * (# of parts - .5)), if multi-part]

If you must post a binary to Usenet, please post it *only* to an
appropriate binaries newsgroup such as alt.binaries.misc, and do *not*
crosspost it to non-binaries groups.  Then, if you like, post something
in the appropriate discussion group telling people where to find the
binary in the binaries group (a pointer to the binary).  This will
permit news administrators and users to decide for themselves whether
to receive the binary files.

Please direct public feedback to and private

Best wishes,

It's over, and can't be helped, and that's one consolation, as they
  always say in Turkey, when they cut the wrong man's head off''
