Of those 30 of them were spam, 100% of these came from Google Groups.
There were 24 non-spam threads, 15 of those (63%) did not come from
Google Groups.

I post sometimes through google but I think g.mail, while from google,
is just used to mask identity. My posts there do not come up as g.mail.
Spammers come here because this is a popular group.

My testing, above, had nothing to do with a gmail address. I looked
for the header that says:

User-Agent: G2/1.0
