Default Group moderator needed?

there's so much spam here now!
I don't know how to change this newsgroup into a moderated one, but
I'd be agreeable to being one of several moderators who could, when
able, just visit the site and knock out all those posts which have
nothing to do with baking. I don't mean this as censorship of views of
any sort -- but there are now more jewellery sales, spam offers for
wine, anything and everything, than there are proper threads. Anybody
with more knowledge on how this could be done or the spammers
controlled?

I do not believe this group gets enough good posts to need a moderator.
very few and far between. wish it would get more. nothing more I love than
baking.

Join the yahoo group re bread machines and the spam is tightly
controlled. Lots of responses about bread baked in the oven, etc.

I think once a non moderated group has been established there's nothing you
can do to change that. You would have to start a new moderated group.
