TrollFilter changes

Page 1 of 2  
A new version of the TrollFilter is now available. Those of you who have been around for a while can probably figure out why.
IMPORTANT: The method of retrieving the TrollFilter has changed. I've taken down the email autoresponder, and replaced it with a (hopefully) much more convenient method of obtaining the file. Simply visit this URL
http://www.milmac.com/trollfilter.php
to download the filter file directly through your browser.

While I can't use your filter, it's terrific that you're still maintaining it, Doug.
On behalf of the wreck, I'll be presumptuous to say "thank you".

You're welcome. Why are you unable to use it?

Yup, a joke at the expense of another human. You're learning you Dumb Fuck! We'll make a man out of you yet!

And there's no Mac version of the nfilter program, is there? Too bad.

Not a big deal for me... My software and wetware filters work pretty well.
My news reader, Thoth, supports regular expressions so it's pretty easy to get the results I want.

Oh, -that- one. It's relatively trivial to translate the nFilter rules into expressions that Thoth understands. It's virtually cut-and-paste.
Aside: that software is _really_ popular at at least one military airbase in Newfoundland.

Cloth, but no thigar. It's Thoth for the _Gander_. Only to be expected, lots of MAC (<M>ilitary <A>irlift <C>ommand) traffic there. :)

In article

Yup, and I've looked at the nFilter rules. There's nothing in there I need that I don't already have.

Or else we could just save some time and change the newgroup name to rec.woodworking.inappropriate.jokes.

Isn't that "family-friendly" moderated woodworking group that the twit in the wheelchair started still out there?
(Don't recall his name... Just as well)

It was Frodo or Ferdie or Whacko or something like that. Somebody (Joat?) pinned the nickname Frito on him and it stuck. At the beginning of the rants I suspected the current character was indeed Frito trying again to take over the newsgroup. I looked him up on Google and he just appeared out of thin air last fall. All the chest beating, teenage angst and wasted bandwidth convinced me my suspicion was correct. I immediately activated my anti-troll protocol..
A quick twitting and a couple of topic filterings fixed this foolishness. The Wrec was back to interesting woodworking topics and discussions. I apparently missed some good jokes, but did get a chance to catch up on unread messages. Life is good. DNFTMFT.
