I started a thread on Google Groups - asking why Google\ncould not do more to suppress the torrent of spam to the\ncomp.lang.java.* hierarchy groups, coming from Google\nGroups posters.\n<[URL]http://groups.google.com/group/Groups-Suggestions/browse_frm/thread/[/URL]\n2a5e4a9399cb8be7/#>\n\nA GG apologist challenged me as to what proof I had\nthat these spammers were using GG. My 'best guess'\nwas the 'X-trace' shown in the full listing of the post. So\nfar, *8/8* of the most recent spam posts to c.l.j.p. have\nhad an X-Trace indicating ..\n\nX-Trace: posting.google.com ...\n\nIs that correct? Is the X-trace the best indication of\nwhere a post originates?\n\nSorry, I was hoping the GGA challenger might have clarified\non the original thread, but they have been conspicuous in\ntheir absence, since I started posting links to examples..\n\nAndrew T.
