    It's not. You couldn't just post here otherwise.

    Seems you use Google Groups. You could at least flag these messages as
    spam. Better use a real newsserver known to have a good clean sweep.

    I've never known of anyone moderating this NG. I setup a pretty broad
    filter so I never see them.

    I have been marking messages as spam or as hateful content. I don't know if this is doing any good.

    Very little spam here on Aioe.org (some in other groups though,
    almost all coming _from_ Google Groups). Google don't have a
    reputation for caring much about their Usenet interface, you'd
    be better off moving to a real newsserver where the admin is
    active in filtering spam. Aioe in particular doesn't suit
    everyone, but there are lots of options.

    The only SPAM I get on this group is similar messages in Italian
    which always contains the word 'PEDOFILO' in the subject so I just
    set a scoring rule to ignore threads with that in the title.
    Hopefully, you can do something similar.

    Best wishes

    A proper newsreader has killfiles and scorefiles.
    You can figure out how to use them ..or maybe you can't.

    Everyone please ignore that killfiles/filtering
    exists in Newsreaders because That Guy has doesn't
    have the hugcircle attitude. All Decent People
    want to help those who don't want to Google things
    for themselves.
