I've not posted or even lurked in this group for the last six months but i've been in and out of here for a few years now, on and off. Each time I return the spam situation is worse or the same, which is always bad. It would be a shame for a group like this to die given it was quite active last time spent any real time on here so, at the risk of seeming lazy, would any of the more regular posters be interested in moderating the group. I think even just filtering the spam would make all the difference.
How, pray tell, do you intend to impose moderation on a Usenet newsgroup?
You do a request for discussion, then a call for votes, then there's a vote, then a debate in net.control or whatever, then the usenet cabal makes it moderated. Then all the posts go through a moderation system before going onto the newsgroup. Seriously, this can be done. See:
It'd be more realistic to create a misc.fitness.weights.moderated, though.
Either way, i don't see a huge amount of spam here. But i also don't see a huge amount of real posts. If there was actual discussion of weights (or dogs, or guns, or cooking, or any of the things we talked about in the old days), the spam would seem less significant. I reckon.
There's spaceships, snappy dialogue, death cultists, likeable characters,
underwater combat, assassinations of public figures for their own good,
zombies, Batman references, robots, memes, talking cats, and stars used
as flamethrowers. -- Alx, on 'Implied Spaces'
