I have this problem as well, the big news services (my new ISP uses
Supernews) seem to have pretty poor group management.  It's the downstream
feed that bothers me more than the upstream, though, because my "server-b"
has an active spam filter.  Except 90% of the stuff server-b blocks I end
up downloading from Supernews anyway.

Right now I run a version of the spam filter locally (feeding message IDs
into applyfilter), but a way to block hierarchies from a particular server
would definitely be appreciated.
