Haven't you ever heard of kill files?  If not, read your rn documentation--you  
can filter out messages with a given subject line, if that thread doesn't  
interest you.  Some newsreaders can also edit out the writings of any  
particular (presumably annoying) person.  

If you're not reading this through USENET, get with the program!
