That's is good work around, I can do it for you. What about others?

Yes, along with a _filters.sample_ and modified manpages
applyfilter(8), fetchnews(5) and fetchnews(8) all inclueded.

I have not modified _rnews_ till yet, the original is not making any
use of this *filtering* presently. Why sort un-filtered news, and then
use applyfilter one by one to every other newsroup which have been
updated by _rnews_ recently. It is not that easy to track what the
plane old _rnews_ have done with the batches. So I wish I could have 
automated this too via _rnews_ itself.

FYI, I have planned to implement _forbidden.groups_ also.
