    What "forum"? Perhaps a bit of reading up on the way Usenet (yes, you
    are posting to Usenet, not to Google(TM) Forums(TM)) works is in order.

    To elaborate on Richard's answer: No. If you want moderation, you
    want comp.lang.c.moderated or a better newsreader.

    The term "forum" is generic term for a place for discussion; this
    newsgroup certainly qualifies. The term "newsgroup" is more precise,
    but not particularly more accurate. (And it's called Google Groups,
    not Google Forums.)

    The answer to the original question is basically no. This is an
    unmoderated newsgroup. There is no central authority. Multiple
    servers all over the world share articles, and automatically forward
    them to each other. Some individual servers may do some spam
    filtering (so many readers may not have seen the original spam), but
    there's no central filtering -- and no central anything else.

    If you see spam in this newsgroup, it's best to simply ignore it. You
    can report the spammer to his/her ISP if you like, but most likely
    someone else has already done so -- and headers are often forged, so
    it can be difficult to tell who the ISP is. Posting a followup to a
    spam is not useful; the spammer will never see your followup, and it
    merely reduces the signal/noise ratio.

    We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.

    s/better//. Google Groups is not a newsreader. It's a half-hearted web
    forum interface tacked onto a news _server_.

    True in the dictionary sense, but when a newbie talks of a forum, the
    odds are greatly in favour of that newbie mistaking a newsgroup for a
    web forum, rather than that newbie being aware of the name of an ancient
    Roman marketplace. Especially if said newbie comes from Google Groups.
    Therefore...

    > The term "newsgroup" is more precise, but not particularly more accurate.


    ....it is, because in this context "forum" is an abbreviated term for a
    web forum, not for the general kind. IME, anyway.

    > (And it's called Google Groups, not Google Forums.)


    It's also not generally written with two (TM) signs. I know.
