Yes. You can fill the Control: header as described
No need for a special Subject: . In Sylpheed one
can do this via:
Account preferences (for NNTP) -> Send ->
Add user-defined header
Normal newsreaders can issue cancel requests at the
strike of a key.
Note that not all servers respect Cancel requests,

() ascii ribbon campaign - against html e-mail
