    Nobody is forcing you to read 'em. Just FYI.

    Why would the wife want to read the shit posted here?

    I think a better question would be: Where are their parents?

    'feminism' doesn't necessarily mean believing in 'male stupidness'.
    according to another meaning it is just about equal rights.

    agree about the shenanigans but filters help a lot.

    ......I know...!!
    I'm married to one...(..a feminist, that is)
    Just couldn't be bothered to precise it all ...
    I agree with you wholeheartedly, by the way.



    > agree about the shenanigans but filters help a lot.


    Yes. I do that as well, just thought I'd make a comment, that's all...
    It's a shame that a few idiots can, and do, spoil it for the many...
    These NG's, particularly the ones where knowledge (..rather than opinion)
    can be extended to others are useful forums...
    The idiots with their profanities and infantile ethos and comments are
    meaningless and worthless.. as you say, once found out, killfile keeps them
    out of the loop for more sensible discussion..
    I have to say, I'm quite new here and reasonably dismayed that in such a
    group this behaviour even prospers....
    Any good lists of the entire posters here that need putting in a
    killfile...? (some are obvious, of course...)

    I once made the comment in some 'advocacy' newsgroup that the discussion
    had really gone downhill and I was told it was always such.

    I seem to remember better times when people would go at one another but
    the points were substantive. sure,there were distortions,
    misrepresentations and of course some name-calling but substance
    outweighed puerility.

    and that stuff was also mostly confined to 'advocacy' and didn't spill
    over so much in a 'technical' group like this.

    anyway, I'm getting comfortable with my filters like well-worn galoshes.

    so back to technical topics....

    Thank you I second that. I am getting some idea of who to killfile here to
    get coherent answers.

    As a woman thinking of upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 on a laptop (I
    already have the "Starter" version on my netbook) I was checking to see if
    any useful information was on this newsgroup.

    I have queries. Having killfiled someone called "Alias" and any subject
    with the word "alias" in the heading why am I still getting the followup
    comments "Re:alias". Do I have to junkfile "Re:alias" as well.?

    And...Is it possible to killfile capital letters in Vista or Windows 7 as
    anyone who posts a heading in caps. is not worth reading.

    Try using self control and only read the posts you're interested in
    instead of wasting your time with filters.

    That wouldn't be a function of Vista or Windows 7, it's up to your
    newsreader to killfile posters. Your headers show you're using Windows
    Mail and I don't believe that capability exists, maybe someone else
    could suggest something?

    Self-control doesn't help with KevPan's out-of-control thread
    creation that is truly disruptive.

    I had KevPan KF'd.......the only KF entry......but some still
    choose to reply to him, namely Yanaire, so I too ended up with
    a bunch of orphaned posts starting with RE:.

    XNews does have the ability to kill entire threads like that,
    but I lack the motivation to figure it out.

    My guess is in the kitchen nuking their brats some mac 'n' cheese to take
    down to the basement. They probably time it out to deliver their snacks

    My reply to "Crash" does that neatly. If you missed it, here it is
    again:

    First, close Xnews and open xnews.ini with notepad, copy and past this
    line, I put it in right before the "Compose" section but I'm not sure
    it matters:

    [Popups]
    ArticleList=acaAddToScore,acvRevealThread,acaReConsThread,-,acaMarkAllRead,acaMarkAllUnread

    Now open Xnews and make sure under "Special" you have "Enable Scoring"
    and "Hard Kill" selected, close and restart Xnews.

    Now, when you see a troll's thread, just right click, select "Add
    to score file" from the, popup check "Kill", set expiration to
    whatever you want, push the "Subject" button and be sure "Matches"
    is selected, click the "Rescore on Apply" box and click "Apply".
    You should now see the entire thread marked -9999 and if you restart
    Xnews, the entire thread will be gone.

    Thank you. I will check that link up.

    BTW I've just experimented with killfiling "Re: Alias" as one word in
    subject heading ( space included) in Windows Mail and it wiped out the rest
    of Alias followers' followups. It looks like I've found myself a way of
    getting rid of some un-needed threads. It worked with "Re: ANN" as well -
    so that is one caps problems solved!

    Note: Alias doesn't have any 'followers', regardless of what
    someone might say. Maybe you meant followups(?).

    So what happened to the 20'ish or so posts from the middle of
    the thread where someone changed the Subject line ?

    I will try that, but also have been kill filing the folks who are not
    smart enough to just ignore him.

    What was it changed to? I cleared the whole set of messages on the 20th as
    most messages seemed to be followup rants.

    machines but this isn't the place for it.
