As others have mentioned, if you want to *kill* (i.e. never see an
article) on body content, then adding Hamster  to your setup is
probably the best solution. Hamster is a 'small' 'personal' News server
which sits between your newsreader (any newsreader) and your real News
server. Besides offline capability, Hamster offers the advanced body
killing/filtering/scoring capability you are looking for. FYI, I use
Hamster with the tin newsreader.
Sounds like it does for usenet what fetchmail does for mail. I may check
When I was running Linux at home a few years back, I settled on tin
after spending a bit of time in knode and pan. In a lot of ways, it was
by far the best newsreader I've ever used (although I missed having
archival folders for keeping articles). Fast, easy and configurable. One
BIG advantage is the way it uses vi(m) for editing, which is /far/
superior to the message editors I've seen in any other newsreaders or
email clients on any platform. Plus, it's a console app, which is always
nice. Giving up mutt and tin when I ended up on Windows again at home
was tough. :-)
I looked at Dialog's plonk rule and unfortunately, it's defaults to
ignore, not delete. Maybe I can figure a way around it, though.
