I don't think this is very helpful, but you can use this (it will
obviously only work if you are "root" or "news"):

#! /bin/bash
if [ $# = 1 ]
    rm /var/spool/news/interesting.groups/$1
    echo Usage: $0 [newsgroup]

Yes. I added a sentence to the paragraph mentioning this.

If the directory /var/spool/news/interesting.groups/ is missing, any
of the programs applyfilter, checkgroups, fetchnews, leafnode or
texpire will restore it.
