Filters aren't on the menu line, and indeed, don't exist per se.  

I got that impression from where "Filter" is displayed between "View" and "Go".
What pan 
uses instead of filters is "scoring".  Where filters are binary (killed/
normal, tho pan uses ignored in place of killed) or trinary (ignored/
normal/watched), scoring is much more flexible, allowing a range of values 
with incremental results such that any individual score might not result 
in an ignored or watched post, but the sum of several scores may still 
result in that.

Thanks for the detailed explanation of scoring. As my wife would say, TMI. All I'm looking for a way to prevent posts from certain individuals from appearing in the list of articles.

Can you help me with that?

Thanks again.
