That flood has moved to comp.os.linux.misc, which makes it very unpleasant to
read. I fully understand why you need that filter.

I don't think it would be trivial, but...

Not addressing the real question? Simply a misunderstanding? The later reply

I am lost here. Did you contact Solbu in a different newsgroup or off-list
(NG)? Or are you referring to Thomas' advice?

My version of KNode does not support it, but I see what you mean now. It is
probably too late to filter out the spam flood. This seems to have reached
an end. This might come handy in the future though.
Looking back at the thread, I realise that I caught up only as I went
