Yes, still a few readers. The group has become flooded with
drug ads, so it'd be a good idea to put something eye-catching
in the subject if you want folks to notice your posts. For the
moment the word motorcycle will work.

+1.

I'm still checking in here but the vast number of spam posts makes
it hard to wade through them all, looking for anything even vaguely
related to motorcycling.

The only remedy I can think of is to add a widely-recognized keyphrase
or -word to the subject line. Far as I can tell the spam posts don't
generally use the word "motorcycle", so that seems a good start. It's
very easy to search, folks paying attention can agree on a new term if
it becomes necessary.

In principle a moderated group could be set up, but I can't think of
anybody who'd want to be the moderator 8-)

Thanks for reading,
