changing news group name

An alternative to moderating or changing the news group names would be to
filter all posts for certain off topic words such as $$, god, creation
....  These key words can be listed in the FAQ so regular readers will
still be free to post as they normally do.  People will still be able to 
post off topic posts put it should greatly reduce the number and make it
more difficult. It will also force people to read the FAQ before posting.
Yet it will not reduce the posting time like moderation does.

Just a suggestion

It isn't just what you know,
nor even who you know, 
but also what you know
that isn't so.
