Hi Bjørn,

With gmail, the message drop-down menu has both a "block sender" and a
"filter messages like this."

Personally, I think using it on a mailing list is a mistake. If you
don't want to read a thread, just don't open the thread. Let your eyes
wander past the line of subject and preview text on the off chance you
might want to look at it and then don't. It's not healthy to
completely isolate yourself from being aware of contrary opinion. That
lets nasty surprises sneak up on you.
