-> 1.) Is this a good ide to block this group ?

-> control 0000000001 0000000001 x
-> control.cancel 0000000001 0000000001 x
-> junk 0000000001 0000000001 x
-> to 0000000001 0000000001 x

-> 2.) If i block the junk could the innd use it anyway for junk-mail ?

if innd is configured not to drop posts to unknown groups, it sends them to
"junk".

i dunno what's "to" group for; has something with news feeding afaik.

"control" is for control messages, i split it to control.cancel,
control.newgroup, control.rmgroup, control.checkgroups and the other should
be avoided (ahh, maybe control.sendsys has a sense, but i don't think so).

I will look at those groups, and probably will cancel each message which
gets there... people send much lame stuff there...
