As you *did* imagine, it is rather hard to 'visalise' this based on a
verbal/textual description alone. Assuming I understand you correctly, you
have a button for "more" and "fewer" conditions. Make one grand rule and
then list the exceptions, e.g.:
rule/condition: If message-id contains "google"
rule/condition: If message-id not contains "john bloggs"

KNode filters and KNode as a whole are probably not most predictable. There
are a few known bugs, so don't exclude that as a possibility. That said, see
if a certain rule unintentionally affects something. Also bear in mine that
scores are cumulative and changing of the filters will not reverse and annul
existing scores. Handle with care. *smile*
PS(OT) - Are both SHIFT's and the CAPS Lock broken? It's just slightly
distracting, but some people seem to prefer that.
