    Report each of these Unsolicited Commercial SPAM postings,
    simply by forwarding the originals to each of the addresses
    below:

    The Knujon Project has been successful in shutting down a
    large number of junk email websites, (over 200,000), as well
    as those conducting illegal activities, such as Deposit Scams,
    Phishing Scams, and so on. It is free to report these Spam
    messages to Kunjon, including email Spam, but you can also
    sign up for a free account, and get your own personal reporting
    address, which gives you reports on your progress against the
    Spammers you report. For any that are interested, here is the
    URL: http://knujon.com/index.html

    The problem with filtering these Spam messages, is that the
    Spammers are constantly changing their headers to defeat the
    Spam filters. And filtered messages are still wasting valuable
    bandwidth, that we all are paying for in one way or another.

    The problem with , even when they do
    ban a Spammer, is that the Spammer then simply signs up for a
    new free account, and continues Spamming. But at least it causes
    them some inconvenience. Of course, only report the Spam that
    originates from Google Groups to their abuse address, but in
    my experience, 99% of the Usenet Spam come from Google Groups.

    Using the reporting address sends a copy of the Spam
    message to the FTC, where they are building a database of habitual
    Spam producing websites. All part of the fight.

    None of these are instant gratification solutions, but in my opinion,
    it is worth the effort, and the few minutes of time it takes. We can
    either fight these habitual Spammers, or we can lie down and take it,
    and put up with the abuse. I choose to fight, taking on these abusers,
    one Spammer at a time.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I encourage you to take
    the time to Report Spam. As little or as much as you have the time to
    fool with, but each report adds to the total. Enough complaints, and
    sooner or later, these Website Registrars have to take action. Thank
    you for your time.

    P.S. There are also other resources and tools, such as browser add-ons
    and plug-ins, that allow simple click reporting, and other reporting
    sites, such as SpamCop, for email Spam only.

    [snip OT rambling]

    I wonder if this is not spam itself? It certainly fits my definition,
    it's an off-topic shameless promotion of an US-centric 3rd party
    service, with an obviously forged return address...

    Sorry if my post annoyed you. I was simply trying to help,
    since the topic of the Spam problem had been brought up
    in a couple of other threads. I thought pointing out a few
    resources for reporting Spam would be helpful. I have been
    harvesting these habitual Spam postings from this group for
    a couple of weeks now, and reporting them daily, just trying
    to help fight your Spam problem, and slow these Spammers
    down.

    Btw, I clearly marked my return address as INVALID, since I
    was not trying to fool anyone. I just know better than to post
    a valid e-mail address, so these e-mail harvesting bots that
    roam Usenet, can readily harvest it. But being a programmer,
    you probably were already aware of the various bots that the
    Spammers and Hackers are using. And since you seemed to
    infer otherwise, let me state that Knujon is not a commercial
    service, but a free Spam and Scam reporting resource, working
    with other Spam-fighting organizations, and agencies. I am not
    affilliated with them, other than I use their resources to report
    Phishing scams, Deposit scams, and other Spam.

    I am still trying to figure out why my single post offering some
    suggestions for reporting these floods of Commercial Spam
    postings bothered you so much. At any rate, I apologize if my
    post offended you somehow. Good luck.
