    always disconnect and dial back in If you have told your newsreader you do want to include portions of the original message in yours it will automatically put the entire thing at the top of your message Use the arrow keys to move down to the lines you want to delete and hit control K which will delete one line at a time You can then write your message Remember that you have to hit enter before your cursor gets to the end of the line because emacs does not have word wrapping When done hit control X control C You ll be asked the question about sending editing aborting etc Chose one If you hit Y your host system will start the process to sending your message across the Net The nn and rn programs work differently when it comes to posting entirely new messages In nn type post and hit enter in any newsgroup You ll be asked which newsgroup to post a message to Type in its name and hit enter Then you ll be asked for keywords These are words you d use to attract somebody scanning a newsgroup Say you re selling your car You might type the type of car here Next comes a summary line which is somewhat similar Finally you ll be asked for the message s distribution This is where you put how widely you want your message disseminated Think about this one for a second If you are selling your car it makes little sense to send a message about it all over the world But if you want to talk about the environment it might make a lot of sense Each host system has its own set of distribution classifications but there s generally a local one just for users of that system one for the city state or region it s in another for the country for example usa one for the continent for Americans and Canadians na and finally one for the entire world usually world Which one to use Generally a couple of seconds thought will help you decide If you re selling your car use your city or regional distribution people in Australia won t much care and may even get annoyed If you want to discuss presidential politics using a USA distribution makes more sense If you want to talk about events in the Middle East sending your message to the entire world is perfectly acceptable Then you can type your message If you ve composed your message offline generally a good idea if you and emacs don t get along you can upload it now You may see a lot of weird looking characters as it uploads into emacs but those will disappear when you hit control X and then control C Alternately save the message for example by hitting m in rn log out compose your message offline log back on and upload your message into a file on your host system

  • EFF's (Extended) Guide to the Internet - Cross-posting
    misc Cross posting is easy It also should mean that people on other systems who subscribe to several newsgroups will see your message only once rather than several times news reading software can cancel out the other copies once a person has read the message When you get ready to post a message whether through Pnews for rn or the post command in nn you ll be asked in which newsgroups Type the names of the various groups separated by a comma but no space for example rec aquaria alt politics animals talk politics misc and hit enter After answering the other questions geographic distribution etc the message will be posted in the various groups unless one of the groups is moderated in which case the message goes to the moderator who decides whether to make it public It s considered bad form to post to an excessive number of newsgroups or inappropriate newsgroups Probably you don t really have to post something in 20 different places And while you may think your particular political issue is vitally important to the fate of the world chances are the readers of rec arts comics will not or at least not important
