[Newsgroups] Why is there spam on the usenet?

I'm not talking about.. fake files.. or the ones that make you go to website.. or the malware

I just wondering why people run programs too ahh.. place what is basically "spam posts" all over the usenet on dead and "active" groups.. you assume there is a financial motive..? but I would almost assume that every usenet'r is too educated for those (maybe with google groups.. "not")

Sure almost every usenet poster is too educated for these. But the price is so low that a 1 in 10,000 readers or so success rates makes it financially worthwhile. It's the same principle as the email spam from Nigeria as to how you can make big money or the big lottery prize you have won...
