META: for those who read through google groups

I know it's not always possible, but try to find a dedicated newsreader where you can build filters and killfiles. I haven't seen any of the nonsense. One of my other favourite newsgroup is having a lot of trolls right now, and they are all getting killfiled.
Apparently, you can do filters on Goggle, it's a little more complicated. Let me see - ah, yes, here are the links. These are courtesy of another poster (kittent) from another newsgroup I inhabit.

Replying to my own post.
It's actually the same idiot - using other people's addresses to post. I use a filter which includes > since he always includes those characters. I don't see any of his stuff.
Complaining to Goggle isn't going to do a lot in this case since he is morphing his address all the time. Maybe they can use the actual return path, or the website name.

I just want to say that since I reported the spam the other day, I have seen no more. I will continue to do this reporting.
Maybe it's just a coincidence. But it made me feel better.

For those who read on google groups, I see a new "report spam" button. Good option.
I like that they are continuing to provide support to those of us who choose to read newsgroups this way.
Thank you!

I use Google Groups on occasion and I'm glad that at least unlike some others they try.
Thanks for spending the time trying to get this nuisance to go away.
