The group is moderated and has been running for quite some time without
problems.

Your experience with Yahoo is possibly limited to unmoderated groups.

It is a Yahoo problem. They think everyone is just fascinated by the
excruciating slow download of copious graphics. They keep sending them
to you even though you keep telling them not to. It wasn't related to
moderation.

You lost me there. I have had groups on One list who merged with egroups
who became owned by Yahoo groups since 97. I have never had problems with
yahoo junk mail or spam - but then I have never used a yahoo address
either, keep the profiles private and run moderated groups.

You say 'they' keep sending 'them' to you. Who is they, and what is them?
You only get from a group what you ask for - if you sign onto a group and
elect to receive individual emails from that community then that is what
you will get - but the emails are from the community not from yahoo
themselves.

You stand more chance of being spammed to death on usenet by using a
legit address with no spam trap.
