Your experience is that most GG posts are junk but not 
most Gmail posts.  And yet someone else posted that Gmail 
posts are the junk ones.  So I wonder how accurate these 
evaluations are.

In either case, while there has been some spam and garbage
posts in c.l.p in the past, I haven't seen very many lately.  
And even in the past, they seemed pretty recognizable to me 
and easily skipped over.

As for stupid questions, undesired formatting etc, I seldom
look at the message headers so I never noticed whether they 
are mostly from GG or Gmail.  But then again I never found 
it hard to glance at a post and move on if I didn't want to 
read it.  YMMV.
