Just for the record, you're aware of the score file, right?
The problem with the score file is that you can only score one thread at
a time. Until the election is past, I'm trying to eliminate all
political threads. There are a lot of them, and it is very laborious to
eliminate them one at a time.
So far, I'm just recalling past filters from the list, marking
everything read and discarding them. From other posts, I gather that's
the best way to do it with XNews. :(
Are you sure about that?
Use pipes "|" in the score file to your advantage. And by "score file" I
mean the one you edit by hand, "score.ini", opened via the Special menu
Here's an anti-politics-spam filter that I use under in Xnews that you're
welcome to try.
% [OT] religious or socio-political subjects follow:
Subject: \ballah\b|amish|atheism|bible|china|chinese|\bchrist( |ian)|\bgod\b|\bhell|islam
Subject: terrori|nazi|ill?egal.*aliens?|presiden|\bwar\b|troll( |s|i)|fbi
Subject: \bUS Elect|liberal( |s|ism)|\bpoliti|\bdemocra|\bbush\b|repub(s?|lic)
If any new OT terms get through the above filter its easy to add to it
using pipes, and you can have as many lines as required, for example,
a possible new line could go something like:
