Can something be done about the endlessly repeating posts coming from "Elke Stepper", for instance rejecting them? Presumably this person's account has been hijacked, or his/her web browser is damaged.

I'd filter them locally but that doesn't seem to be an option. If it is, can someone tell me how to do it?

In fact this appears to be a problem with NNTP shadowing to the web
forum, not intentional spamming:<br>

In NNTP there is only a single post (with a few replies that look
like broken threads).  It's all very annoying in any case... <br>

Hopefully my post won't be repeated dozens of times...<br>

it seems all posts from NNTP clients are at least hard to read from the web forum as the HTML is rendered literally, looks like the web forum needs some fix
