Filters work differently from Agent

I like the way Agent lets you select a post and add a kill filter. It automatically brings in the poster name or the post subject. I'm not clear yet how filters work in NB, although I've set up a couple, but a similar feature would be nice.

I agree. Quade is actually looking into rethinking the filters to make them more approachable right now.
