Tim built me a page to zap spam groups today, so I've gone through the list and cleared it out. New ones flagged as spam will show up on that page, which I'll add to my list of things to check (probably once daily).

Cool. Sometimes people do mis-flag, but it's good to get rid of the ones that are definitely spam.

Is there any way for you to remove the tags for "spam" and/or "spammer" from these two apparently legitimate groups, which are dormant?

Hrm. No, not at present, but I'll see what I can do.

Just for reference I believe Lister Hill had been previously abusing the reviews. I believe they were either the ones putting the page counts into their reviews or linking to their card catalog. I forget which. That's probably where the spam tag came from in this case. (I didn;t do it.)

Looks like though that issue has been cleaned up. Thanks.
