This NG is getting useless

This NG is inundated with postings from kooks. Most of those posts show
multiple postings to other news groups.

There used to be a small, free program that locked out all NG postings that
were cross-posted to more than two newsgroups.

Would anyone remember the name of this program?

Re: This NG is getting useless

Thank you, Dave. That's exactly what I was looking for.

Watching some of these NGs is like visiting an insane asylum.

But bad "entertainment". Why the name/OnTopic of this ng is
alt.comp.anti-virus? Should be better a.c.private-flame,
a.c.private-war, a.c.un-mature, a.c.full-quoting, a.c.bandwidth-wasting
etc..

How about alt.comp.nitpick?

I'm full-quoting so you can see what heinous crime you committed.
You snipped nothing apart from attributions. If yer gonna snip, snip
content *and* the attributions that go with it. Do not include
unnatributed comments!

I love Weebl. But not Bob. I don't like Bob. He's such a wuss. Or

How do you get this program to install under xp?
I get the "not a valid win32 application" error.

Nevermind:) Just renamed the exe to a zip and it then could be run after
extraction.
How about an example of how to make a filter to stop crossposters?

Thank you:)
This is my first time trying this so I have some questions.
Where do I put the lines?
Do I copy them as is?
                Thanks again

Nfilter has a sample file with instructions, but all you need to do is
open something like Notepad, copy those two lines in, save as
nfilter.txt, close, and change the extension to .dat .

Anything other than .txt will add header stuff you don't want, and I
think I saw a note about avoiding blank lines, but don't recall for sure.

If you want to add a person to the filter:

* drop from:*pcbutts*

It's faster to do it that way than to add to my reader filter.

Some types of spam or kook generated posts can be avoided with:

* drop subject:*Good*News*

Replace * with a specific news group if you want the filter to work only
with that news group. The number of space in the line does not matter,
within sensible limits.

That'll get you started. Be sure to read all the files that will open in
Notepad.

Thanks again:) What "language" is this "* drop from:*pcbutts*" written in so
that I may google it to learn
about it?
