Is there ANY WAY in Thunderbird to filter out all the spam posts from
"GerardJan" in this newsgroup?

Yes but if you filter him out, there won't be anything to read here.

He is keeping this newsgroup active.

Yes, 26 posts just today according to my filter log.

He must be off his meds again. :-(

That character has been nuts for decades. Meds don't help.
Killfiling does. But even killfiling is ineffective when
some off-track feels the urge to quote his garbage.


You could try adding your weight to the fixing of this bug that I
reported six years ago.


If fixed that would let the "ignore subthread" filter work correctly and
thus ignore all the replies to blacklisted posts too. I wouldn't hold my
breath though - no-one seems interested in what I consider to be the
most major bug in Thunderbird.

Alternatively, it works fine in 40tude Dialog - to which I resort from
time to time when it all gets too annoying for me.

oh yeah
