INN FAQ Part 7

NOTE: The maintainers of the INN FAQ stopped publishing in December 1997.
An important update to this topic is provided by Mib Software in the Usenet RKT for Subscribers.

Subject: (7.15) Why am I getting alt.sex.pictures even though I have
"ME:!alt.sex.pictures" in my newsfeeds file?

The active file is the definitive list of what newsgroups you receive.
INN's ME entry is different from C News and B News; please see
newsfeeds.5. If you do not want to receive alt.sex.pictures, ask the
system(s) that send you news not to send it to you. (You would have to do
that no matter what news system you are running.)
