Yes, the best solution would be for them to remove all mozilla.*
groups from their server. You can refer them to the third paragraph
under "General Information" at

  The mozilla.* hierarchy is a local news hierarchy only available
  through and is not propagated to other Usenet
  servers. This is by design, in order to both help eliminate spam and
  provide slower lag time between posts and replies without having to
  wait for propagation. Please do not mirror our newsgroups elsewhere
  without providing a disclaimer that they should use
  to post. (We do share them with Google Groups to provide a web access
  method and archiving.)

     Kleeneness is next to Gödelness.
