Probably because USENET is open to all manner of spam and trolls that we
can do without. A vast amount of that comes care of Google Groups.
Lastly, may I remind you that USENET has no anti-spam tools apart from a
killfile facility, which not all newsreaders provide.

As it is, we get spam we could do without, often via the forums. In
consequence my copy of SA has a fairly impressive set of custom rules
that I've developed specially to deep-six spam arriving via the Wine
mailing list.
