Oh, not really.  Read up on the worm.  He didn't post any of those
messages, the worm did.  He didn't even write the content, it was from
other posters.

For example, this one:

| From: "H.C.Hsiang" <hchsiang@tpts4.seed.net.tw>
| Subject: Re: which sound configuration utility?

Was originally posted to the list on Apr 27, 2000 by Ethan Benson (see
http://lists.debian.org/debian-user-0004/msg02401.html for the
original).  The worm dug it out of the mailbox and resubmitted it to the
list.

Any perceived helpfulness in the posts was because the content was
stolen from other posts.
