It all sounds like the plot of a (mediocre) science fiction novel: strange beings with names like the Cancelbunny, an 144108, XS4ALL, and Scamizdat, fighting on a battleground with no fixed location any where on earth, using strings of binary digits as their weapons.
But whoever or whatever the Cancelbunny may be, its efforts were quickly met by the development of yet another software weapon, appropriately dubbed "Lazarus," that resurrects canceled messages (or, more accurately, simply alerts the original poster, and all other participants in the newsgroup, that a specific message has been canceled, leaving it up to the original poster to reinstate the message if he or she was not the party that issued the cancel command).
