    Why is so much is seen relative to other brand names? This group has
    become a waste of time so I've become only a casual reader.

    I totally agree, some people think they do us a favor
    by telling us about alll the other brands and offers.
    I have two phones, a sony ericsson and now a Nokia N95
    And info on the Nokia I was hoping to get here, and info
    on the sony ericsson I get elswhere.

    And if you tell that you are not interested in their junk you
    get a flamewar.

    Agreed;

    It'd be nice if things were on-topic but...

    The flameware /is/ the point for those posters so, I'd recommend
    filtering. If you need any pointers, I ain't no pro but I've eliminated
    most of the rabble from my screen.

    The iPhone fanbois on attws think it's funny to add every cellular
    newsgroup to ever reply to field. I've tried, since I noticed this, to
    eliminate crossposting, but occasionally fail to do so.

    For that I personally apologize.....

    You sound like one of those wasting our time, so I guess the 1st filter
    will be your address!

    I use Thunderbird as my newsreader too and, as you prolly already know,
    it barely filters by name. In short, no, I don't use a method to do
    this. There *is* a freeware add-on (a proxy) called nfilter that a lot
    of people rave about.

    Hopefully TB 3.0 will do something with filters! Yes, I've heard of
    nfilter and I'll soon look into it -- many are using it to avoid Google
    Groups. Refer to this page:

    http://improve-usenet.org/results.html

    plus pages 1 and 2, and this page where he speaks of Hamster & newsproxy
    (formerly called nfilter.

    http://improve-usenet.org/filters_ex2.html

    Perhaps it could also filter wherever these cross-posters are coming from.
