no, the only hope you can get is that either you
find a feed that does have spam filtering or you
set up a killfile yourself.
i just mark 'em all read and move on. not worth
commenting upon or doing anything.
usenet is decentralized and how each node manages
their storage can be determined by their local
policies or desires to clean things up like that or
not and ignore it (which is what a fair number do).
Alterenatively, one might invest a littrle time and,maybe, money in
competent news/mail-reading software that supports "killfiles". AKA
"twit lists" and it'seasy-enough never to see those posts from
individuals or from entire domains such as googlegroups, or
gardenbanter, for examples.
I don't see them either but I think my news service wweds them out
pretty effectively, too. My local twit list takes care of the rest.
BTW: Are you familiar with the (rumored) origin of the expression,
...the only traits that are passed down in your family
i certainly am, i've been reading usenet since the
early '80s before the great renaming. can't remember when
i made my first post. before google groups sucked up
dejanews i could find historical stuff easier. now i
don't even bother trying.
I wasn't around at that time but I know "the rest of the story" , as
in prior to '93 the surge on usenet was confined to September when all
the new freshmen hit campus and discovered it . Wasn't it in September
'93 when AOHell came online ?
