Two of the three previous messages I see in this group today, the
messsages sent at 2018.01.03 10:26 UTC and at 2018.01.03 10:28 UTC,
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

The same way you would filter the spam in the Mozilla newsgroups like mozilla.general.



But spam filters are grayed out for Thunderbird for Newsgroups.

Not spam filters, Message Filters, as in Tools - Message Filters.
