There are several ways: you could set up a filter that moves his fics
into the trash automatically. Indeed, you could do with with any
parameter you choose (if your client is decent). I'd trash all Ranma
fics out of principle, but then I wouldn't get any e-mail at all! :D
I think the point I'm trying to make is: pre-empting bad fic authors,
even the worst of them, isn't good business. It's a slippery slope.
On your own computer, you're free to make the rules. But the flow of
fics should run unfettered.
Now, to dig up Sunshine Girl...
