Quick FAQ on spam

If we don't start reporting these spammers en-masse, they will be able to take over this and several other groups they are targetting. For the last several weeks, every spam has parse-traced either to google.com or shaw.ca without exception.
If you want to help the group, start LARTing now.

Examine the headers of the offending message. Many will contain an e-mail address for reporting abuses. Failing that, you can try an e-mail to either "abuse", "postmaster", and/or "webmaster" at the spammers domain.
In your e-mail tell 'em what you don't like and include the full message (including headers) you're complaining about.
You can get the header info by right-clicking on the message in the message tree window and selecting "properties" and "Details" in the pop-up window. To get both headers and full message text, click on "Message Source" in the pop-up window.

And many of them are forged. NNTP-Posting-Host is forged less often, but it is sometimes missing. The Path list is probably the best as long as it doesn't show "MISMATCH" in it. But IIRC, even it can be forged.
Short answer, it's difficult if not impossible to locate the professional spammer. What you can do is nab the amateur.
