    If I was to see something on a newsgroup that was blatant spamming, how
    would I go about reporting it?

    Don't know much about newsgroups but I noticed that on a message headers,
    there's usually an address to report spam, such as "X-Complaints-To: "

    "Phil B" <> wrote in message news:c7dssf$qf$...

    I use a program called "I hate spam". It give the opportuntiy to bounce
    back to the sender and also to report to the sender's ISP. Works great
    for me.

    Bouncing spam back to the sender is a VERY unwise move. 99% of the From:
    addresses in spam are forged and you are just re-sending meaningless crap
    to some poor victim who hasn't the vaguest notion of what's going on.
