Need unusual procmail filter

    Normally, filters are inserted into Procmail to filter out spam. I want to
    do the reverse in a way.

    My ISP's filter is too harsh. Some non-spam, although not stopped, comes
    with a SPAM label in the subject line, which can be embarrassing when I
    reply.

    Is there a formula for deleting the label?

    TIA,

    Doug.

    Those are some screwed up headers.

    Two "X-Original-NNTP-Posting-Host:" IPs?!

    I'd like to help, but you really are coming across as a troll.
    And I don't help trolls.

    Especially trolls who want to know about mail filters, which
    generally means they are planning to graduate to spamming.

    Pretty good with procmail, though.

    Note: I won't be downloading any articles on this thread.

    Actually, people don't ever ask the following questions, to my
    knowledge.

    Look how casually this Usenet criminal commits the worst offense of all:
    Forging someone else's alias.

    You'd think he'd want such an important Public Service Bulletin
    to be archived.

    ROTFL!
    That group exists only on the servers of Fat Mike Horwath,
    otherwise known as King Troll: octanews and readfreenews.

    Only trolls use his servers.

    He doesn't like me :)
    Nope. Challenge-Response Systems (which is what he is referring
    to) were in use long before I ever touched a computer.

    Here's a brief introduction to them:

    http://home.earthlink.net/~alanconnor/elrav1/cr.html

    They are hated by spammers and trolls because they can't beat
    them.
    s spews into NANAE.

    No it isn't.
    sgroups, including comp.mail.misc.

    Well. That's where mail filters are most often discussed.

    And where you obviously got the information that you then
    distorted.
    That website was put up by a spammer/troll who hates
    Challenge-Response Systems with a blinding purple passion.

    Whom I kept beating in debates on comp.mail.misc, even though he
    cheated and used dozens of sockpuppets.

    He hates C-R Systems because he can't beat them.

    I've never even looked at the site.

    The opinions of Internet vermin are of no interest to me, and
    like this feeb, they have threat ratings below zero.

    The site has been up for years and hasn't slowed me down a bit.
    <article not downloaded:

    Thanks for the opportunity to tell these people about the best
    troll and spam filters in existence.

    They'll learn on my introductory page about the
    Challenge-Response System offered by Earthlink as a part of its
    standard spam fighting package, among other things.

    hehe

    Note: The troll is posting the article I am responding to with an
    auto-poster that replies to any post I make on the Usenet with
    that post.

    He is using an application/utility that only a Usenet spammer
    would have.

    Told you trolls and spammers hate Challenge-Response Systems.

    And they sure aren't very bright!

    Trolls and spammers _really_ hate Challenge-Response Systems,
    because they can't beat them.

    They all think that they have a right to send mail to your
    private mailboxes that have false return addresses on them.

    They are wrong.

    On the Usenet, trolls think that they have a right to send
    articles to your newsreader while pretending to be more than one
    person.

    They too are wrong.

    Note: I won't be downloading any articles on this thread.

    If someone wants to discuss this subject with me, they can see
    the contact page on my website. Mail from gmail, and other
    anonymous servers, are not accepted.

    Trolls needn't bother. Anonymous mails are silently dumped.

    You can pipe messages into a script or command with procmail, like:

    :0
    * ^Subject:.*SPAM
    | sed s/SPAM//

    That's probably not exactly it but you get the idea. See 'man
    procmailex' for some examples.

    'man formail' might also be useful. Good luck.

    Correction: Someone who _sometimes_ calls him/herself "Rhonda Lea
    Only serious Useneters, most of them trolls, use individual.net.
    It's not free any longer and a pain for non-Europeans to use.

    (Note the utter lack of European groups in the posting history
    below.)

    But it does provide anonymity. There's nothing in the headers
    that can be used by anyone but the newsadmins at indididual.net
    to determine whether or not the poster is using the same alias
    they used the last time. Or the next time.
    Probably some guy named "Steve". Trolls always think that
    everyone on the Usenet is dumb as a brick and believes everything
    that they read.

    Anonymous and throwaway gmail address.

    This person is using individual.net and a gmail address. Not
    a newbie. And only newbies put up with OE, which is a
    piece-of-schitt newsreader.

    No newbies have even _heard_ of individual.net.

    Trolls just can't ever believe that someone is not interested
    in their opinions.

    (even though any ignorant child with their mommy's computer
    can post anything on the Usenet.)

    Note: I won't be downloading any articles on this thread. Nor do
    I care what a bunch of snivelling punk trolls post. No one does.

    (Or are the aliases on this thread all sockpuppets of the same
    troll? The others are very obviously sockpuppets. No need to even
    examine their headers.)

    Trolls don't have the mental capacity to understand the simple
    fact that obvious dishonest cowards have no credbibility.

    See your problem, Troll?: You can't effectively deny my
    accusation of being "Rhonda Lea Kirk" because you obviously take
    pains to hide your true posting history by using multiple aliases
    and anonymous news and mailservers.

    You obviously cannot be trusted.
    This sockpuppet, belonging to an obvious Usenet pro, has only
    been used an average of less than once a day.

    "Rhonda Lea Kirk" must have a _lot_ of sockpuppets.

    Sure makes a lot more sense that an obviously experienced troll
    like you would run Linux/Gnus than Windows/OE.

    Of course, you probably use both, and others too.

    Gotta hide.

    See your problen, Troll?: You can't effectively deny my accusation
    of being "Rhonda Lea Kirk" because you obviously take pains to hide
    your true posting history by using multiple aliases and an anonymous
    newsserver and mail server.

    Even though no one who can do anything but fart on the Internet
    is looking for you.

    If they were, they'd have had you. I could track you down. There just isn't any point in it. You are no threat of any kind.

    With a hundred sockpuppets you can't even get an article in my
    newsreader or a mail in my mailboxes.

    Truth is, you are hiding your true posting history. That's it.
    That's why all the aliases and newsservers and mailboxes.

    Knowing that you are a dishonest coward tells me all I need to
    know to permanently gagfile you. Even sockpuppets you haven't
    created yet.

    What you post cannot be trusted.

    Hahahaha, classic.
    He uses this one constantly, accusing everyone who calls him a loony of
    being the same person.

    In his eyes, only 2 people post to usenet, him, and the millions of aliases
    who attack him.

    Only trolls use just an email address in their From header.

    I won't even bother checking what will obviously be only a
    partial posting history for this troll.

    But I've never seen this alias on this group, and he is
    (apparently) using Unix/Linux and only trolls subscribe to
    comp.os.linux.advocacy. It's a cesspool.

    Using just an email address in the From header is utterly
    unconventional: They are telling you right up front that they
    don't care about the guidelines that make the Usenet work.

    In this case, he takes it a step further and calls himself
    "spike", which is a nickname that only a snivelling punk who
    thinks he's a tough guy would use: A juvenile delinquent, and
    proud of it.

    The email part of a From header can change regularly for good
    reasons. It isn't even used in searches at GG.

    Note: I won't be downloading any articles on this thread.

  20. Who is Alan Connor?

    Alan Connor is the inventor and implementor of the final ultimate
    solution to the spam problem, and everyone who dares claim otherwise
    is a spammer.
    That is basically the gist of the messages Alan sometimes spews into NANAE.

    Alan Connor is appearently also active on many other newsgroups.


    So what is he raving about?

    In reality, Alan's system is known as a challenge-response or C/R system;
    it auto-answers incoming email with a challenge and only lets the email
    through if it receives a valid response. There are several problems with
    this concept, but Alan doesn't want to hear them. In addition,
    Alan's system isn't even a very good implementation of the C/R concept,
    as it fails to address the chicken-egg problem that is inherent to C/R:
    What if your C/R system sends a challenge to an email address that is
    also protected by a C/R system? Because of this, Alan and Timo Salmi,
    another C/R advocate, are unable to email eachother. So basically Alan's
    system is a broken implementation of a flawed concept.
