This person should be banned.

I hope not (the list being dead that is!).

Hopefully beppu will be able to ban these interlopers soon.

The spammers are relentless. You just gotta ban them as they come.

I think he meant "dead" as in "unmaintained" (because of the spam coming in),
not as in "nothing happening".

hdp.

Yes sadly Google groups does have a serious spam issue.... hence
jQuery have "given up" on it.

Google really needs to provide more preventive spam measures and not
rely on the groups admin to do all the cleaning up :(

Well the default membership approach is the problem.

All you really have to do is screen who joins thoroughly by using the non-default membership option.

You know what... that's not a bad idea. This list only gets a tiny
trickle of new members, so it's not unreasonable to make new members
get screened before they join. Hopefully, the SPAM from this Google
Group will be infrequent to non-existent from now on.
