-> Are the following newsgroup names acceptable ?
-> 
->     From: Jay Denebeim <jaydenebeim at icqmail.com>
->     Control: newgroup -.mongrelmind-shiteating-dog
->     Newsgroups: alt.config,-.mongrelmind-shiteating-dog
->     Subject: cmsg newgroup -.mongrelmind-shiteating-dog
->     Message-ID: <c58matcfvrl701ij1o0luqjm80s7rr1kln at 4ax.com>

-> Producing :
-> 
->     jaydenebeim at icqmail.com asks for -.mongrelmind-shiteating-dog
->     to be created.
->   
->     If this is acceptable, type:
->       /news/bin/ctlinnd newgroup -.mongrelmind-shiteating-dog y
-> jaydenebeim at icqmail.com
-> 
-> 
-> it doesn't match anything except the default rule in control.ctl.

i think it's not acceptable
acceptable names should only contain a-z, 0-9, _, - 
well i didn't found anything in RFC but ...
