    Yes, Alex, your postings ARE newsgroup spam. Wanna cut it
    out, please?

    Best way to stop abuse from google groups posters is to send your
    complaint email to groups-abuse@google.com

    Complete waste of effort. This is the best way:

    %BOS
    [*.sendmail]

    %Expires
    Message-ID: googlegroups.com

    On *my* planet, Google completely ignores complaints.

    Sorry, Jason, but Wes, Dave and Doug have it right - google
    normally takes no responsibility for crap posted via groups
    or for email spam originating at gmail. You get, if you get
    anything, a generalized wave of the hands, a statement to
    the effect "we don't censor our subscribers" and a complete
    washing of the hands. Complaining to google is pissing in the
    wind.

    One has the choice of blocking the sender, blocking the thread
    or blocking based on message-id/origin. Alex is, as you can
    see, in my killfile; killing the thread .. well, the subject is
    just too broad to effectively do the job and, unfortunately, my
    newsreader of choice doesn't do message-id kills.

    Sigh.

    ..
    I'm on Earth, where Google Groups eventually acts against
    complaints that match their definition of spam - which may
    not match yours - but often takes complaints about each
    instance of the spam for about 6 weeks to do it. I doubt
    if frequent posts with "spam" in the title, but no ads in the
    body of the posts, would match their definition.

    They are, however, much more active at blocking anything
    that matches their definition from reaching anyone who
    used Google Groups to read the posts.

    You say it takes Google 6 weeks to act, yet the life-span of the spam
    is a couple of days. See the problem now?

    In my experience, Google has never done a thing to curb spam. In some
    cases, they do less than nothing.


    Google is the new evil. Just as MS decided how people were to use
    computers and forced that model on people, Google is deciding on how
    people are to use The Internet, and is forcing that model on all their
    users. Argh.

    I don't see spam as much of an issue, either in my email or in
    the newsgroups I read. If anything, it's on the decline.

    Maybe it's time to chill out about spam...

    Actually, Google presents a fairly wide range of experimental tools
    and methods to interact with the Internet, many of them quite "open"
    to adaptation by interested users.

    When *any* player is chosen by more than 3/4 of the market, they
    naturally acquire significant influence on the direction of the
    technology. Google at least lets you "vote" about how you'd like
    to see things go. It's hard to see how they could be more responsive
    to their huge user base than they are.

    It's easy to forget that success is as much a straitjacket as an
    enabler--any change you make will annoy almost as many people (since
    its a change) as it pleases. Put another way, the price of success
    is compatibility. ;-)

    We should hope that Microsoft will become equally responsive! ;-)
