Yes, most newsreaders will allow killfiles, although yours works with message
bodies as well -- but there's a downside, as killfiles slow down
newsgathering, rules even more, and if you pay by time (as you do for your
phone bill in many countries), that runs up the bill.
And some newsreaders don't have the facility, eg I don't think Netscape does.
