I don't think this would help... If I understand procmail correctly it
does not filter until the post has been d/l'ed. So you're still wasteing
connect time.

BUT I want to say that expect for a couple of sex spams we've had over the
past three years or so we stay on topic very good. Also I kind of like
Fred putting up links list this. Here in Germany I pay for every minute
I'm on the phone so I miss allot of good stuff. He points out things that
I'm sometimes interested in. Plus he does not take up a lot of connect
time, just the title and link. What bits my ass is you guys that say "me
too" and quote 100 lines. Lets take care of that before we jump on Fred,
