Flood of control messages

Hi there,

	For the last week or two, I've been seeing a plethora [1] of
newgroups with "hipcrime" in the group name. Many (most?) are faked up
to appear as coming from tale at uu.net. They fail authentication
obviously, so the groups aren't created, but they still gotta be
looked at, and take up CPU time, etc.

	My question is twofold:

	1) Has anyone else noticed this?

	1a) Any hints on how to deal with this problem?
