    Per Netlingo's site ...

    plonk
    To kill (or filter-out) a particular person's messages from the
    newsgroups you read. This term can also refer to the noise a newbie
    makes when he or she hits the bottom of someone's kill file.

    It's an idiotic and childish way people use to say they have blocked someone
    so that they can't see messages from a particular person anymore. They
    think that the person they are kill-filing/blocking will see it..... it's a
    way someone can basically have the last word... you know the way two little
    kids argue and one puts their fingers in their ears and yells 'I can't hear
    you, I can't hear you!!!'.......

    Most mature adults just simple block a username and go on about their
    business because mature people know that all the person that got blocked has
    to do is change nicknames and come right back. So if someone is being a
    jerk and everyone were to block him/her without saying a word, the jerk
    wouldn't know any better..... but when idiots have to have the last words by
    saying plonk then the jerk just changes nicks and comes back.

    Which is the case with this newsgroup. Ole Phillippe has changed his
    ID 5 times in the past month.

    Hey ... don't egg him on. He has been very nice the last week or so and not
    changed his ID at all. I hold out hope that he may not do so again.

    I wasn't trying to egg him on Tom. I was just pointing out that the
    prior poster was right on, with regards to users changing IDs ...
