"There is really nothing that can be done about this other than deleting

Sorry Larry but there is more that can be done. I run a few egroups as a
moderator and I've set it up so that new member posts are moderated.
Basically I have to approve of the post before it's released. If it is spam
I delete it and ban the member/spammer if its not spam then I approve the
post and release it and then change that member's status to unmoderated. I
also frequently check the files, links, and photos areas for any spam
So people don't think of it as censorship I only go after the blatant spam
crap that we've seen here and maybe other egroups.
