Two of the three previous messages I see in this group today, the

seem to be spam. Is that possible? Shouldn't this messages be filtered
or deleted by some admin? The messages very clearly state instructions
to help the spammers making more victims. And they may use this group
to make much more of them. So it is not hard to find other users here
that, like myself, should agree with those two messages being removed
from this group.

moz.general is not moderated. I suppose someone could be asked to set up
spam filters on it every month or os. In the meantime, set your own
filters, or just delete the useless messages. That's what I do.

How would I filter/delete when using USENET?
I run User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0 SeaMonkey/2.48

You can set up filters on a newsgroup just like an email account. Something like:

If From contains GerardJan mark as read.

The message will still be there but if, like I do, you simply advance through the unread messages by pressing the space bar you'll never see it.
