Adjusted filter


Thanks to adding "newsgroups" to the Thunderbird filter (with
customize), this newsgroup sure got a lot better S/N ratio. But I had to
add "talk" to "alt" and "misc".

How did you finally get things to work, Louis?

Follow this thread:
In short, with Thunderbird, Tools > Message Filters > Edit > Filter Rules > Add item (use "+" after last filtered item in list), Choose the filtered item (eg. Subject, From, Body...) scroll down to Customize, click on it.
Customize Headers pops up. Type "Newsgroups" in the textbox. Hit OK. Exit Customize Headers, back to Filter Rules. For the new entry, add a filtered item, select Newsgroups from list, enter part or all of group (misc or misc.survivalism, for example). Hit OK. You might have to dump out of Tbird for the new filter to work.
Now if only folks would stop answering cross-posts in this groups, you wouldn't see any of it. But it IS more focused on metalworking.
My filtered terms under Newsgroups: alt, misc, and talk.

Same here. That feature used to not exist, glad it's fixed.
Who was that Cliff character anyway? I vaguely remember.....
