In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,
Pluto will allow people to killfile the thread, sub-thread, domain,
author, and possibly more. I believe Messenger Pro can do the same.
Killfiling by Subject line (which I assume is what you mean by "thread"
here) isn't the most effective option.
Don't other platforms have these facilities too?
Indeed. In fact, I once proposed to Tony (via email) that we should both
not reply to each others' newsgroup posts *at all*. He readily agreed,
and then broke the agreement a few hours (IIRC) later.
He then went on to argue that breaking the letter of the agreement was
fine so long as he didn't (in his mind) break the spirit of it. Or
I've also gone through trying to explain all this MAUG stuff to him via
email, slowly and (!) politely. Unfortunately, as we've seen elsewhere in
this thread, any such explanation turns in Tony's mind into "evidence" for
yet another *** against him.
