I am able to automatically ignore that stuff, by lowering score (in
gnus) on all gmail posting addresses, then re-increasing score manually
for legitimate posters here who are unfortunate enough to use those
addresses.

Thanks Paul for your advice,
	Unfortunately, I do not seem to have the facilities that you mention.
I also realise that these offensive threads would normally be blocked by a moderator.
So it seems that this group does not have a moderator?

It's an unmoderated newsgroup.
I used to access it through Thunderbird's newsgroup reader, but lost my access-provider and haven't found a suitable replacement; the "Google Groups" web-interface used to be decent enough as I didn't mind skipping the (more infrequent) trash... but the new "update" to it has left it in a nearly-unusable state. (For example: as I type this, there is strange screen-movement that seems to be the consequence of some genius capturing the "on key press" event and forcing a redraw.) Back to Thunderbird (and many actual newsreaders), there are often killfiles/blacklists that you can use to simply never see a post a particular user or particular topic, these are very useful for filtering junk out... and even now, Comp.Lang.Ada is far, far less junk than many other places for discussion.

	I take it you are using GoogleGroups to access this...

	You'll have to consider that not everything on GoogleGroups is a
"Google" "group". They mirror many Usenet newsgroups -- of which
comp.lang.ada is one. Traditionally, if a Usenet newsgroup was moderated,
it would have a .moderated in the name.

	Newsreaders, accessing using a NNTP news server, typically contain some
means of filtering posts (unfortunately, the one I use only permits
filtering on subject or author <G>). While I can easily killfile posts with
"@gmail.com", it is more complicated to then go back and allow specific
addresses (in truth, I've never tried).

I use Thunderbird with eternal-september.org. You have to sign up, but then it

I've installed Thunderbird but can't find out how to access this group through Thunderbird's newsgroup reader.
Any assistance gratefully appreciated.

You can use aioe:

    https://www.aioe.org/

The page contains news server settings. Aioe supports both reading and 
posting to c.l.a.

Roger,

Use Thunderdird (windows/osx/linux) > Top Menu > Tools > Messages Filters.

Just create a filter with an expressive name, like "Asshole filter" (sorry).

Fill it with theses key words : "Dating Married Sex Pussy Nudes Flirt
Flirting".

Enjoy a cleaned Ada group with no more annoying messages !

I believe that Eternal-September puts people in a restricted mode by 
default.  I think that you need to tell Thunderbird to always 
authenticate to be able to access more than just eternal-september.* groups.

> Any assistance gratefully appreciated.

Try the following:

Edit -> Account Settings -> Eternal-September -> Server Settings -> 
Always request authentication when connecting to this server.

I found it easier to ignore threads (right click on the message). The 
bot usually creates a thread and them disputes with itself.

If only there were a way to filter these automated replies that contain nothing 
but a quote of the original msg.

I have an idea. What about 10 filters "From" / "ends with":

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    ...
    [email protected]

That should cover generated e-mail addresses (until they change the 
pattern).

As I remember, you first have to get an eternal-september account (that
lets you read the newsgroup), and then request permission to post.  I
guess that is an anti-spam measure or something.  It's been some years
but I think I got posting permission right away (like the same day),
after asking for it.  I had had the account for a few days at the time.

It's usenet, it's distributed as in there is no one site that owns it, 
there is no moderator.

But there is or should be an abuse contact in the offending post 
headers. Have you reported the spam, off-topic posts?

Usenet (NNTP) does have a concept of moderation.  It's just seldom used 
and doesn't work as one might think.

There are also ways to overcome it.

There is a google group called dk.comp.lang.ada. The main language is dansk/norsk but English is allowed.

Otherwise Telegram.

newsgroup.

About this group: even Google Groups lets you mark the sex-related
threads as abusive and not see them thereafter. At the moment I see

Give me every spam possible for any, even a benevolent moderation, 
especially one from governments/big corporations.

BTW, let's look it positive. If someone considers an Ada newsgroup worth 
spamming, that tells something! (:-))

Note that:
Google groups only does this if you are signed into a google account.  I am
not allowed to use google accounts at work (people were using them to
bypass some security rules) and honestly I don't even like signing in at
home just to avoid the tracking across accounts (script blocking for other
types of tracking).  I did try to report abuse not logged in, but it requires a
login and then it only hides them if I am logged in, which is a shame.

I  have had good luck so far using the filters in Thunderbird suggested 
by an  earlier responder to this thread.
