Don't forget to unsubscribe *before* removing the group.
Any read attempt will *re-create* the file:   
'/var/spool/news/interesting.groups/group_name' without warning.

It is also safer to remove the entire directory in the spool.
e.g. If your group name is: 'my.group.to.remove'

rm -f /var/spool/news/my/group/to/remove/*
rm -f /var/spool/news/my/group/to/remove/.overview
rmdir /var/spool/news/my/group/to/remove      (in most cases)

You can also use applyfilter to do that, but this is not not
straightforward. :<
This would be an interesting option to add !
