How to get rid of "Wodger"

Discussion in 'Hobby Electronics' started by Brian Goldsmith, Jan 23, 2004.

  1. Elsewhere on this NG there is a moronic thread about some person in
    NZ.This thread has been cross posted from the beginning to many other
    NGs ,the end result is hundreds of unwanted postings appearing in my
    Inbox.Could some kind soul advise me if there is any convienent method
    of, a) getting rid of the unwanted crap (aside from "reading" each post)
    and b) preventing its reappearence? I wish!!!!!!

    Thanks,Brian Goldsmith.

    ** It is actually "Woger" - according to "Uncle StoatWarbler". "Woger"
    was the character the crowd wanted released in The Life Of Brian.
    ".....welease Woger........welease Woger .... " they all cried.

    This may or may not relate to the particular "Woger" residing in the Land
    of the Long White Cloud.


    BTW Blocking entire threads would be convenient - must be some way to
    make OE do it.

    Does your newsreader program have an "ignore thread" command?

    "Agent" newsreader does.

    I just set up a rule to delete and mark as read anything with 'Woger' in the
    subject. Wodger, however, was released into my system. :)
    I find the ignore thread facility cumbersome as it counts them in the unread
    messages count in the folders toolbar. OE is so very untidy.

    But it doesn't seem to work properly on threads with long
    titles because it doesn't thread them properly. I assume
    it only looks at the first n characters of a thread title?

  7. Using FreeAgent, or any other newsreader I have used, you simply don't
    open threads you don't want to. No need to open every message.
    For some Yahoo! groups I get every message emailed to my inbox, but I
    only do this for low volume email list groups where nearly every
    message is relevant to me. I can't imagine getting every
    aus.electronics message emailed to my inbox, I'd go insane in a matter
    of hours! Not that I thought you could get usenet groups emailed to
    your inbox anyway? Out of curiosity, can you get use usenet like an
    email list group?

    i use yahoo groups, but I have it set to send me batches of postings (~ 25 a
    time or what ever is available in any 24 hours period.)
