Hi all,

First off - this is not flame bait or a troll. It's a genuine question.

Since the forum gateway was introduced, it is my opinion that this list 
is getting flooded with newbie questions. Check the "I just installed 
Ubuntu" thread for a typical example.

I wish to silently remove all wine-forum posts and their replies from my 
inbox. I plan to filter based on 
From: wineforum-user at winehq.org
and the phrase "@forum.winehq.org" appearing anywhere in Message-ID:, 
In-Reply-To: or From:

Not knowing how the gateway is configured, my question is: will this be 

Now the explanation why. I spend my days at work answering newbie 
questions. I've done my requisite 1000s of hours in the past, now it's 
someone else's turn. I'm not asking for the gateway to be undone - 
those users have a perfect right to ask questions and get answers. If 
this is the place, then that is fine. I just don't want to see the 
questions anymore, and I don't want to unsubscribe either (the list 
itself is great as-is).

So lets please not turn this into an "Alan is a great big newbie-hating 
spawn-of-Satan jerk" thread, OK?
