We've gotten a fair bit of spam from a couple gmail addresses on the newsgroups: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Can we block this address from the mailing lists/newsgroups? Or do we need to contact giganews/google to do this?
I've see 038 also, now.
Neither Giganews nor Google will ban individual users. :( We've tried before. Best we can do is cancel the messages after the fact and that only works on Giganews (and only if they posted via Giganews). I can drop any mail from those addresses on the list gateway though, so their messages won't make it to the mailing list version, which I've just done.
