The postmaster at UIUC has been notified to shut down Jerry's account.
I have been doing this on every instance called to my attention or
that I run across myself.  Jerry was duly notified along with the
postmaster, so he is undoubtedly very happy right now.

Hopefully others will get the message eventually and stop this.

I already moderate three bionet groups and a couple of others are also
moderated.  I would be delighted if people want to volunteer as
moderators but this could become a time-consuming task on high volume
groups.  If we started assessing usage fees, we might be able to pay
people to do this.  Otherwise I think that we will have to stay with
the current system.  One pays a "price" anyway in the form of being
subjected to this kind of drivel, but most readers probably prefer the
current system.
