Re: The complaint seems confused
"Someone write a news site where I can literally filter this stuff out."
We had that capability in Larry Wall's rn news reader. Back in 1985ish.
There are perl modules that allow it and could, in theory, be grafted into the ElReg interface fairly easily, but for some reason ElReg has decided that killfiles aren't necessary for most of us. Rumo(u)r has it that ElReg staffers have the capability (hi, Mr. Pott), and it seems to me that it was extended to gold badge members (beta only?) several years ago.
Me, I use wetware to filter out bozos. Seems cleaner somehow.
