The problem is Google does nothing.

I've reported dozens of google groups newsgroup spammers. They take
no action. What few spammers they have taken action against, they
have a 'defect' in their system where basically for their blogspot
services, if they cancel a blogspot webpage for someone who spams,
there's nothing to prevent the same person from signing back up and
recreating the blogspot site again.

Yes, I have spam I've reported to them as far back as 2006, with
absolutely no action taken.

I drop all Google Groups posts in my usenet client.
