I know. As someone else previously said a lot of good guys post helpful info from those addys.
It's a shame that Google doesn't enforce it's own terms of service.
I use Windows Mail as my newsreader and would really like to block postings to multiple groups and certain individuals. The only guy I had luck blocking was MI5.
If you can get NFilter aka NewsProxy to run on your Windows system then
you should be able to block just about anything you wish. It's an old
freeware util and it does a much better job than most if not all current
reader and binary downloader, and it will work with just about any reader.
The sad thing that it may have some problem with some WinXP system.
Works fine on Vista but is a bit of a hassle. You set it to gather & filter news then set your newsreader to it (localhost) for retrieving messages. It can add text to subject headers 'flag', or drop them outright. If flagging, you then use your newsreader's filters on that such as |SPAM| in the subject. I have thunderbird just mark those read & add a star so I only see them if someone replies (ugh) but they are there for reference if it's a legitimate thread, plus you can see what the fuss is all about and know to ignore it. In the filter list, you can add known good-guys above the googlegroups trap with no added subject text and it stops on the first match.
* flag: From:*stauffer@xxxxxxxxxxxx* <- good guy: stop
* flag:|SPAM| Message-ID:*googlegroups* # <- google groups
* flag:|SPAM| Subject:*cancel* # <- junk messages
# alt.test drop from:*rita* #(if you want to just delete)
#* drop Message-ID:*googlegroups* # (if you want to just delete)
# this is a comment
# * is a wildcard match
Other newsreaders will do all this in one step, but not thunderbird or outlook.
almost all google groups messages filtered due to spam
