http://permalink.gmane.org – In case people have an alias on < at >gnome.org: I banned < at >googlegroups.com from sending mail to < at >gnome.org. Spammers setup an "Google Group", then send their spam via that group. Google groups sends each message with a different "smtp from" / return-path, so it is not easy to block this. As Google has done absolutely nothing to block such behaviour, I have to resort to completely banning < at >googlegroups.com. I've also banned a few spammers, but that is just usual maintenance.
