Is there any posts other than Spam here anymore?

I have to use a web interface to see this group anymore, hence I only see 10 entries per page and of them, I am averaging 1 real post for every 2 pages. What the heck is going on?

Get a real news server. I pay $7.99 a month for GigaNews and get exceptional service; much better than the idiots at my ISP who offer the "same" service for free. I'd rather pay the $7.99 and actually get what I'm paying for.
Before I forget: moving away from the web interface will allow you to filter out all the crap. I don't see any of it; haven't for ages. I don't even use a dedicated news reader: I use Outlook Express with NewsProxy and Quotefix-OE.

The web interface you are using is google groups, which is where the spam is coming from. Google makes money from the ads present to you on they're interface.

It isn't just this newsgroup. Alt.home.repair is also being hit hard.

Why? Because you are doing it from work and they won't let you access port 119 through the firewall?
If so, I understand, but there are alternatives, like a computer at home.

Actually one of Giganews' alternate ports is 80, the other 23. Forte's server has port 443 as an alternate. I am sure that other NSP's provide other ports beside 119.

There is lots of spam lately. I didn't need to use filters for a long time. Now the filters are set, only a few get by and they get added.
