What spams? It isn't a moderated group and filters work beautifully.

My filter log shows that there have been about 20 since yesterday morning.

I've complained about Women thing to the poster's ISP but they can't do
anything about it because I'm not their customer!!!

That poster is based in India when paedophilia and rapes is common place
as far as I can see in the news.

Post here your mail and all of us could sent the same mail to the
poster's ISP.

300 mails complaining for the same guy - could change the situation ...

ISP's don't care about Usenet, google/etc groups, or e-lists. If they're
moderated, the moderator can block pests. If they're unmoderated,
filters at your end are the only solution. Or a change of attitude in
the pest.

It's probably territorial - the equivalent of a dog pissing on trees,
lampposts, cars and other assorted stationary objects.

If you ever get an email about pork, ham, salt and preservatives, don’t
open it. It’s spam.
