I've watched filtering tips over the last couple of weeks for
folks using various news readers (besides AOL's) and been
bummed at not seeing AOL's options mentioned.
I just went to AOL's newsgroups window, simply titled
"Newsgroups". This is the place you go to select which
groups you want to subscribe too.
To Filter: Click on "Set Preferences"
that calls up a heading called "Global Newsgroup Preferences"
Click on tab for "Filtering"
Under Select filter type: select "Subject Contains"
Then under "Enter new filter:" enter the word you want to filter
and click the "Add Filter" I entered all the words I wanted to filter
individually, then finish by clicking the "Save" button.
It works and is easy to go too and update.
Cleaner at last.
