Try filtering on gmane.spam.detected in Xref [1].  Those detected spam
articles are automatically hidden in Loom (the web interface):
See also <URL:>,
<URL:> and the Gnus spam reporting stuff
(info "(gnus)Gmane Spam Reporting").

[1] In Gnus, you can use the following score file:

| (("xref"
|   ("gmane.spam.detected" -1000 nil s))
|  ("subject"
|   ("test" -2000 nil s))
|  (mark-and-expunge -100))

Bye, Reiner.
