Yup... newsgroups that are not moderated are just a sewer. They attract all

You either have to ignore it; killfile it; block sender or just stop reading
the ng.

The best option is to have interests that are far enough from the
mainstream that the NGs don't attract a lot of idiots.

Barring that, plan on taking a few minutes per day to killfile people. I
used to killfile judiciously--giving second and third chances--but now I
terminate with extreme prejudice.
