No, Panix admnistrators have been the ones issuing the cancels; the
*.answers moderators initiated a dialog with them almost immediately.
Mara Chibnik appears to be spearheading the cleanup efforts; she
already realizes that the initial round of cancels issued needed were
missing Approved: lines to take effect in the moderated newsgroups
which were spammed.
