What we need is a way to ignore all post s by a certain user.

Wow, if only every newsreader released since the mid-80s had done
exactly that.

Seriously, use Usenet for this stuff.

For ages I’ve been wanting to have a baysian filter that classifies
entire email threads with “read” or “nuke” based on whether it finds it
interesting. I’d want it to have extra weight associated to the people
involved in the thread. Blacklist thunk, ilias, and trans and I’d be
set.

one.

you need to acknowledge that there are 3 different ways that people use
this:

  • ruby-talk mailing list
  • ruby-forum
  • usenet (through various interfaces)

AFAIK, all 3 of these are bidirectional, tho that may not actually be
the case with ruby-forum.

I have acknowledged them.

By suggesting that if you want the kind of functionality a newsreader
provides, you should use a newsreader and the Usenet interface.

I wouldn’t be telling people “switch to Usenet” if I didn’t think there
were
other interfaces.

There is also the google-group archive of the mailing list and the
google-group archive of the usenet group, not to mention gateways like
gmane.
