Ya'll know that Google has a help feature.!? On that help feature is
a button which allows you to access the Google Group Abuse Email.
Whenever someone continuiously ( like I observed last week) Spams the
group with off topic & obscene material, it should be reported. You
must copy some of the message headers 9or entire messages) & send tham
along with your complaint. Google then may/ will block the accused--
They really do look into such things if requested. I know you folks
out there don't want this group moderated, so maybe we should do
something to clean it up ourselves - If indeed we are being spammed.
If you email the perps directly, you may be subject to email flames
yourselves. Maybe this should become part of our FAQ's
Meaningless in real life. The people that do this to get their jollies use
an email account for a day and then change to another. So what if he is
closed down? They have a few other names and accounts ready to go. Ignore
them and they go away. That is the only thing the really works in the long

Recently, I've added several keywords to my Agent filter. I filter on
the subject content rather than the spammer, as they frequently change
their name and this also wipes out responding posts. This was
suprisingly easy to do and very efffective. If people would just
ignore the spammers they would go elsewhere and no filters would be
needed, but unfortunately that has not happened.
Are you talking about Agent's internal filtering or something
like Nfilter? If internal, please post an example. I got ticked
off at Agent for not being able to filter body text which would
have helped me avoid everyone else's replies to all the twits in
Life is short. Eat dessert first!

This will filter on the subject, but it is case-sensitive. You can
specify the filter only work on rec.woodworking, which is what I do.
I recall the good times when the wreck was all informative, unusually
polite, and much cleaner than a beer tavern.
