    All is gibberish in 'microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general, and in
    .....outlook' today,

    Does this mark their final passing?

    Shame.

    Correction: it's only OE that has gone gibberish. Apols.

    All is not gibberish, just some from a particular user or domain.
    The garbage messages have nothing to do with the group's demise.

    Said gibberish is coming from those using Eternal.September & other

    You could kill them all by filtering anything that has "ukr.net" in the
    From: field. But the poster(s?) probably won't be back, and the
    newsgroup won't be around for much longer anyway.

    The newsgroup will be around for ages, we can only hope that the free
    Usenet providers discontinue hosting the MS groups on their servers.

    Yes, you're right, I misspoke. The garbage poster(s) were posting
    directly to the Microsoft servers - I assume they won't know how to do
    anything else.

    No, it's not - it's being posted directly to the Microsoft news server.
