spam

Does anyone know how to stop all these "SPAM" post which are starting to get in the way and take up a lot of bandwidth. If you will notice, this person
uses a different FROM address and a different SUBJECT for each post making it difficult to block them. Paul

I find that automatically deleting all postings to more than 3 newsgroups kills all of the spam. My news reader has that facility built in, but I don't know how you could do it in Outlook with using something like NewsProxy and defining rules in that.

I wonder if google could do anything about it. All of the posts have persecution M-I5 in them. I think the person needs mental help. I read one of their posts once, and I kind of feel sorry for them, but definitely don't feel like reading their stuff. They seem to be the epitome of paranoid.
Have a good day, Bill

As I said, I don't see any of these postings, unless some stupid sod re-posts the whole message with a one line comment attached, so don't know where the initiate from. In the 17 newsgroups that I subscribe to, there are currently 12 threads (including this one) on this problem, so a Goggle Groups search on SPAM, filtering, censorship should find some of the solutions suggested so far.
Certainly if it's being posted by a Google user, then complain to Google ( snipped-for-privacy@google.com) and then might withdraw the persons ability to post after a week or so. If you are viewing this using Google (rather than a newsgroup reading program like Agent, Thunderbird or even Outlook Express) then there's not a hope that Google will remove these postings as that would be censorship.
Have a good day

The poster made it hard to have it automatically deleted... his email and subject lines are all different every time. I am still trying to figure out a way in outlook express.

_____ I use a filter in Thunderbird as follows: 1) a combination of M, I, and 5, and mark the message as "Read" 2) a word that starts with an M, and ends with a 5, and mark the message as "Read"
Indeed, the subject is cleverly "mangled" with spaces, commas, periods and other characters to make filtering difficult.
This works as a single filter in Thunderbird for all newsgroups. I don't use MS Outlook Express. Perhaps other newsgroup members can test this filtering method?

I have seen other groups much more infected than this one. Poor devil. It must be a full time job!!! He or she will probably stop sometime without a salary.
