Yeah, very interesting that we've had no such problems with trolls and cross
posting in the year or so I've been reading this. Then, all of a sudden,
after you posted this to this group, within a few hours, the group suddenly
had lots of cross posts and junk.
Thanks for dragging this group into the problem...
I doubt if there was much of a problem in the other groups, except for a
few individuals, before this spam was posted.
Use the filters in your news reading software to reject all cross posted
articles. In some groups (not the ones in question in this thread) I've
been doing this for years and it makes the groups much more readable.
The group mentality in several other groups this has affected is quite
different, and in retaliating it has exacerbated the problem leaving
the groups almost unreadable. I add each obvious culprit into the
kill filters but still get to see their drivel when a regular replies
to one of these cretins.
However the perpetrators are quite upset as several of the regulars in
another group are spamming alt.off-topic quite excessively
