How about a simple filter to weed out any message that is cross-posted
to any other group? In other words, enforce a no-cross-posts rule.
We'll let all the regulars in on the secret, and the anti-cow's milk
and pro-polio types' messages will just never show up, since they are
almost invariably cross-posted from some group from Dimension X. And
they'll probably never know it, 'cuz most of them don't actually read
this group directly (I'm guessing). Anyway, it would prevent any of us
from having to give up our day jobs to become moderator...
