Chalk up another list member here.  Spam filters take care of the garbage,
alternatively Sourceforge seems to be pretty accurate in use of the
[SPAM] header anyway so perhaps you could filter on that.

I've still not found anything which meets my needs as well as trn.  If I
had a wish list for trn I think better character set support would be
at the top of it.  But no other newsreader I've tried has the ability
to kill troll subthreads whilst leaving the main thread intact in the
simple but effective way trn can.
