I thought of this as I was click-and-dragging all of the spam headers
for deletion. Here's a quick and easy manual way to delete spam:
Just delete everything that doesn't have "re:something" in the title.
95% of the posts will disappear and what you'll have left is content
worth reading, unless the subect is "re:OT something" which you can
easily delete in your second pass. Voila, read away.
Oh, I know. You think you've spotted a flaw in my plan. What, you say,
if it's the original post of worthwhile content. That won't have a
"re:" prefacing the "something" in the title.
Big deal, I say. With all the bottom posters here who don't trim
content, you'll get to read the original post anyway. The only minor
problem is any replies you might want to make to the OP won't fall in
the right place. Of course, if you don't trim content, it won't matter
