Right now, when I checked the group messages, there was 88 new ones! I
got pretty surprised, of course. There were only 3 or 4 "real" unread
message. All the rest seem to be just spam about sex dates - I think
they are simply that, do you agree? I saw that all (or most) of the
messages were from different mail addresses, looking to be real.

This group not being moderated on message content is something good.
But that must not make it vulnerable to spam.

Create a filter. I'm sure there are some words in the Subjects that will
work to filter out the noise.

That is a good idea. So you did not see any of the dozens of messages I saw?

I did and created a filter. We'll see how well it works.

A moment ago I opened this NG, the New Message count went from 98 to 8 just slow enough that I could read the "98".

Filters are good.
