That's up to 5/05/2008:1400UTC. And yes, I have a rather harsh set
of rules in the killfile - and I think you can guess about when I
added a googlegroups.com rule for this group.
Also, I noticed a look of traffic seems to have moved to distro-specific
groups (like alt.os.linux.ubuntu) over the past couple of years.
a.o.l.ubuntu isn't that old, but

and google doesn't carry this group. The problem here is win-turfers.
Several other groups like a.o.l.mandriva and a.o.l.suse aren't that much
Much of the spam orginates from Google Groups (GG), and several longtime
Usenet readers drop GG posts to improve signal (I'm one).
I'm not doing so globally, but in two groups I'm now killing _replies_
to google posts, because some of the clueless can't resist replying to
google-spammers who don't read the group[s] anyway (they merely post
their spam and move on).
I find this group (colm) still very useful without the GG spam.
