[Noisebridge-discuss] Basic filter for our Mailing Lists

I've created a filter for controlling what I'm receiving on the discuss
list; keep in mind you can always find any message by looking in the
mailing list archives. It works! The basic filter is as follows:
from: "name as it appears on the mailing list"
You might also want to create an additional filter using their actual
e-mail address so they're unable to contact you directly, via cc, or bcc.
I would love to know if anyone has a simple filter or script for deleting
messages that only contain "+1" as the entire body of the e-mail. Also,
I'm down to teach a one-off class on using filters if at least three people
will attend around 7pm - 7:30pm in the next week.
