Hey, you (or rather Mark) convinced me that filtering can be good

An extract from man 5 fetchnews (leafnode-2.0a11):

       The filterfile stores a number of entries in the following
              newsgroups = [wildmat]
              pattern = [pcre]
              action = kill|select|[score]
       Based  on  these  entries,  fetchnews  decides  whether to
       retrieve an article from the upstream server or not.   The
       entries are considered from the top down.
