Doesn't Thunderbird have a scoring, blocking, or blacklisting facility
to allow you to hide/ignore those posts? I have slrn hide all
postings with headers that contain a line that matches this

While I generally find Google to be mostly non-evil (at least when
compared to most other behmouth companies), their attitude regarding
Google Groups is notably awful.

Or it could be they're too ignorant to know there's a problem. Trying
to explain the problem and the available options is, IME, pointless.
Even if you can drag them along to the point where they understand
there's a problem and they can do something about it, as long as

I just gave up and now ignore posts from Google Groups. I've decided
there's no point it trying to change either Google Groups itself or
the people who use it. I occasionally see most/all of posts from GG
when they get quoted in followups, and never have I had occasion to
wish I hadn't missed a GG posting.
 OK, so I'm am annoyed with them after my Google phone updated to
Android 4.2 this afternoon and the lock-screen clock is now
_physically_painful_ to look at. However, I'm convinced that's
not evil -- just a complete and utter lack of visual design
