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.

I had no idea my filtering worked so well.
Thank you for the confirmation.

Did not know that there was a filter log until I visited this thread.
There are folk that continue to challenge us to filter them and should be looked at as an opportunity to sharpen our filtering skills.

Ok, I give up. Where do I find the filter log? Clicked on Tools, Filters, Filter Log and all I got was a message to check the box (it was) to enable the log. I can't find any log file anywhere.

Well, if you did not have logging enabled then you won't find the filterlog.html file in your profile.

That's just it; it was checked already when I looked. I just ran a "find" on my C drive for news.mozilla.org and filterlog.html. Neither exist.

The news.mozilla.org folder, should in the News folder of your profile folder. The filterlog.html file is the first file in my folder.

In my profile, in the News folder I have three subfolders; news.albasani.net, news.mozilla.com and news.mozilla-3.com. In the news.mozilla.com folder are two files; mozilla.general.msf and mozilla.support.firefox.msf. That's all. Nothing about filters at all. The -3 folder has a bunch of very old .dat, .msf & .htm files; nothing current. The filters I have set appear to be working, and are set to keep a log. I just can't seem to find it anywhere.

A modern Thunderbird would probably help.

I'm sure you're right about that! But I've been using this suite for so long, it's like an old friend.
