I have however been trying to get my isp that has a free 7 day retention server to remove the group
i mean on other porn groups fairplay they cant check out every picture/file uploaded for child porn that would require an insane amount of man hours of work.
But they could at least remove groups such as that.
By removing groups you are promoting censorship. That goes against what usenet stands for. There are other ways to avoid pedo stuff. Like you mention this specific group has pedo crap in it. Thanks, now at least those of us who know will avoid this group. Those who want pedo will get it anyhow. At least by knowing which groups are the ones we can avoid it is safer. Instead of asking every ISP to remove them. That is not the way of Usenet.
IMO , Slyck is a great place to post any reported groups. I am sure relevant authorities will take note in time and do something about it. In the meanwhile, better be safe than sorry. If you know a group please report it so a majority of us can avoid having to go through the same torture. Search engines can remove them from indexing as well. I dont care if a few pedos get what they want, I am sure they'll get whats coming to them as well.
