Are there any "moderated" Google Groups dealing with amateur telescope
making and telescope buffs? This cross-posting and spamming from these
fanatic psychos boggles the mind. Like, they have literally thousands
of other political and social groups they can hammer, but they still
come into groups like this and spout their bullshit crap, day in and
day out.

Could we start a moderated Google Group and killfile these insane
little pricks?

Yes, try some of the forums on Cloudynights.com. There is one specifically for ATMs, along with one for building observatories and a number of others concerning telescopes in general. The forums, while moderated, are done in a fairly gentle manner, so there is a lot of give and take (and a *lot* of useful information provided) without having to deal with the noise of the off-topic spammers and trolls. Clear skies to you.
