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.
Google Groups Killfile / Filter
Google Groups Killfile (works with Firefox + Greasemonkey):
Google Groups Filter (works with MS Internet Explorer):
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.
For those who read on google groups, I see a new "report spam" button.
I like that they are continuing to provide support to those of us who
choose to read newsgroups this way.
