Newsgroup spam

In SeaMonkey (probably Thunderbird as well), if you right click the 
subject in the message, one of the options is to delete the message, 
which will delete it from the list.

The spams appear to be posted via Google Groups, but the Groups abuse 
e-mail address no longer works. abuse <at> google <dot> com does work, 
as I haven't received any bounces from that address, but do not know if 
anyone actually reads the e-mails sent to it, or if they investigate.

....right-click the subject /name in the message list at the top/...

I tried abuse@google.com (if they get spammed they have something to 
analyse) years ago with no results I could see.  The spam postings also 
remained up.
Chris Ilias does delete some postings here but he leaves THAT MISERABLE 
CHARACTER alone, and if I say more he'll probably start censoring me.

You can use filters to remove much spam so you won't see it.

I've created a filter for it.
