Does anyone know of a moderated Google group covering bicycles?

I see that this Usenet group is still full of spam and other garbage,
and because of that I've fallen off reading it very often.

Eternal September does a pretty good job of keeping spam out of this
group. Of course, I have to filter the nutcases myself, but they
identify themselves very quickly and then I can forget they exist.

It's easy to filter out the spam and other garbage using filters in
Thunderbird or other news-readers.

Remember to use both e-mail address filters and subject filters. There
are often threads attacking a specific person where you may not want to
filter out everyone responding to the thread.

Here's the filter list I have at this point in time, just add these
filters and the group cleans up nicely:

e-mail address filters

If you seek a quiter place, you could check out Peter J White's Bicycle
Lifestyle list. You can subscribe as a mailing list, or read over the web,
but there's no NNTP (newsreader) access:

http://groups.google.com/group/bicyclelifestyle/

Disclaimer: I'm a volunteer moderator (read: spam killer) for the list.

As others have pointed out, you can also switch to a newsreader with
killfile capabilities. I do this, with a fairly short, but brutal killfile.
There isn't much wheat left in this group once the chaff is gone.

I sure hope you find what you are looking for because I can see that you
would bore us out of our freaking skulls. ALL moderated groups, without any
exceptions, are for dullards and numbskulls. I personally would not be
caught dead on one. Imagine anyone having the effrontery to pass judgment on
a post of mine! What an outrage that would be.

SMS is a jerk. It is never necessary to filter anyone. The best thing he
could do is to filter himself right out of these groups. After all, he just
wants to talk to himself. There are already enough assholes here without
him.

Gee, it certainly is too bad that you are so easily offended. Perhaps
after you have removed your pink tu-tu and your ballet slippers, you
will give some thought to the question of why you feel so threatened
when you read anything you don't approve of. You could also talk to a
shrink about it. Just don't wear the tu-tu and ballet slippers when
you go see the shrink, OK?

How about a woman in a red tutu and running shoes crawling in the mud
to the finish line?

How about guy in black bicycle shorts, pink tutu, coconut bra, and
cleated road shoes?
