Is this a legitimate google group, i.e. one that wasn't set up as a spam
target? I ask because the genuine Google Groups I've seen have either
USENET type names or (at least) human-comprehensible names while this
one is pure obfuscated garbage.

IOW, can junk groups be identified by a rule that looks at the structure
of the group name?

AFAIK you can be a member of a Google Group without having a Google
account. Many of them map onto USENET so you can read them without ever
going near Google.
