Spam can both be filtered and complained about in the right place. Headless
people with ridiculous nick names that full-quote spammers and starting
pointless discussions out of their utter cluelessness are much more of a
nuisance here.

Is that implied criticism of some unknown individual/group for not
doing what you are clearly too lazy to do for yourself? [...]
Don't quote signatures. (For you: Ever.)
What are you on about Dick?
I can imagine Richard not appreciating your becoming this familiar.
I don't use Usenet ...
You do, you just don't know it. Which is the tragedy.
I simply log on to Google groups.
That much is obvious. Ignorance, and particularly ignorance about the used
communications medium, is more common among googlodytes than anywhere else.
ISTM these days Google Groups has pretty much replaced AOL regarding the
percentage of lusers posting through it.
How am I being lazy? In what sense am I being lazy?
Implicitly you blame others for not doing what you don't (want to) do --
doing something against spam. Instead you *feed* spammers and trolls, and
spam by yourself.[1] However, since Usenet simply does not work the way you
want it to, discussing that is pointless.

I don't get these things through email whatsoever.
E-mail? You should get yourself informed unless you want to make a complete
fool of yourself here.
I log in and view them.
You don't say.

Well instead of blasting me why didn't you simply explain the
situation. I did'nt know usenet was actually the base for this stuff
and had no reason to think otherwise. I just chip in my 2 cents when
I've got time when the boss is'nt looking or I have 5 mins to kill. I
don't activly spend all day on these things looking for problems I
might know the answer too.

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged.

Or, if you require a more secular perspective, apply Kant's
"Categorical Imperative" to this situation.

I do hope you see the chief cause of your problems now.
