SuckMT is a multithreaded replacement for suck that uses client NNTP to download news messages from a news server. It automatically balances the download of all news items over several NNTP socket connections, thus actually using a lot more of the available bandwidth. SuckMT includes kill/keep rules that are regular expressions which can optionally be case insensitive. Statistics are kept how often and when a kill/keep rule was matched for the last time. To upload new messages back to the NNTP server you will still need tools from the suck package.
Microbrew MicroSieve is designed to be a high speed spam filter for USENET news. Given the large amount of spam riding around in major USENET news systems, a spam filter has to be very fast and remain effective. It checks for duplicate and large articles, spambots, and binaries in non-binary groups. It also has path-based auto-accept and auto-reject, as well as cross-post limiting.
The NukePost script automates the process of removing multiple Usenet posts from Google's message archive, saving you the trouble of continually reloading and resubmitting Google's removal page. It requires an active Google utility account and the Message-IDs of the posts you want to remove.
The ausadmin project is designed to automate the maintenance of USENET newsgroup hierarchies (such as aus.*) and provide end-users with useful online information regarding all the newsgroups in the hierarchy as well as proposals (Request For Discussion and Call For Votes). It consists of a software package and a Web site package. The software implements Perl classes which maintain data structures representing existing newsgroups and proposals for new newsgroups, and the Web site is mostly dynamically generated by Perl CGI and PHP code which reads the data structures mentioned above. The Web site is intended to provide the user with as much information as possible about the newsgroups which are under management.
mail2news-easy is a utility that converts mail to news and news to mail. This program is unique in that it needs less configuration and modifying files than other products; it needs only one file, containing the signature of the mailing-list sender and the news name to which it relates. It installs easily, suppressing 100 of 100 modifications in the first install, and 75 of 100 when upgrading.
