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 news.mozilla.org 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 news.mozilla.org
to post. (We do share them with Google Groups to provide a web access
method and archiving.)
