Thanks, I looked at the samples. I was hoping maybe there were better
general scoring rules to eliminate most spam (outside of the recent flood).
Plus I was curious what the average score file looked like.

Since most spam comes via GoogleGroups, try the portion I have left as
quoted in this post.

If there are GGers (real people) you want to read, add them after with

I used 40tude exclusively for about two weeks. Just couldn't get used to

I can hit the "Z" key and have a three pane layout if I want in Agent,
but prefer to deal with each post on a single pane.

plan to participate in an ongoing fashion, the few moments spent
learning whatever newsreader you choose will be amortized by the
continuing facility and pleasure you get.

I doubt it has any effect at all.

Like a billboard doesn't care who reads it - or what the pigeons are
doing.

But the advertisers care. If you had a cheap and effective way of
recording who looks at a billboard, the billboard business would explode....
