Better idea: auto-forward any messages with that header, to that
address. Odds are it's accurate :)

I'm one of them. Gmail is great for mailing lists, though I would
never use it as a personal email client. But I'm more of a lurker than
a poster on this list, so D'Arcy won't miss me anyway.

Oops. Didn't see that you had already posted that idea. I'm sorry. :)
But anyway, I had another idea (which hasn't already been mentioned.) ;)
Since there are a good deal of "gems" in Google groups, and not all of
them are spam artists, how about a whitelist/blacklist in the program?
That way some posts from "good" people come through from G-Groups, and
others (the "bad" ones) don't.
Plus, the ones that you do blacklist would auto-generate a message to
groups-abuse(a)google.com. That'll show 'em. :D
People should read more.
"All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost;
the old that is strong does not wither,
deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
a light from the shadows shall spring;
renenwed shall be blade that was broken,
the crownless again shall be king."

As the song says. "How can I miss you if you won't go away." :-)
As I explained, I don't block just because you are on gmail.com. I
only block if you use Google Groups to post via news.
