Is there nobody looking after this newsgroup,cant something be done
about this spam!


It's nearly *all* coming via googlegroups.com, so just killfile anything
with it in the path :-)


I made a comment about this in regard to the recent 'selling Fritzbox'
post.
The most effective thing you can do is investigate how to set filters on
your 'News Reader' client. I only use Linux now so I can't comment on
Windows but the Pan reader filters the spam very well.


Reading it on Google Groups this morning, I noticed a report spam
button below the post

I have no idea yet whether Google can actually start filtering what is
displayed, but given that Google Mail is very good at removing spam
received to the gmail address I use here, it might be worth hoping
that they will start taking some steps, and I've just spent a few
minutes reporting about 150 posts until I got to this one

If I reply again, it's because it gets easier to find this again ...


well, to my surprise, loads of threads have been removed, and this is
now about number 20, instead of being pages back

and they aren't just hidden for me reading, as it looks the same when
logged out

whether an actual person at Google is at the other end checking each
report, or whether there are automatic systems, I have no idea

but I hope the latter, and that their filters will be learning what to
remove

Excellent! There was so much spam on this ng it made it very difficult to
follow. I have got rid of probably 95% of it with filters in my ng client
but for those who don't/can't set filters it must be very bad.
