    Is this what's actually out there, or is there a glitch in the software? I remember seeing a few pages of wildly off-topic material like this once in one of Baez's finds threads.

    Yes, it's actually out there. Someone has been posting large batches of this garbage in various groups, not just sci.physics.research. The perpetrator has been forging "Approved:" headers so as to bypass the moderation process in moderated groups.
