I do remember one period about a week long many years
ago when Microsoft put out a new version of their
usenet news server. Because they were Microsoft, of
course, ordinary plebian Message-Id: headers were not
good enough for them, so they would always re-write
the Message-Id: in their vastly superior Microsoft
standard way.

Naturally, usenet news feeds all over the world
exploded as every message anyone posted that made it to
a Microsoft server would get duplicated and posted
again (since it was obviously a different message).

That was a fun week on usenet :-).
