    Anyone know of an extension or plug-in for TB which would allow setting
    up filters for all subscribed news groups?

    I'm seeing a lot of spam which is cross-posted to all the groups I'm
    subscribed to and I have to set up a filter for each group.

    TIA!

    Bob , as far I know TB doesn't has such ability still now. and most
    probably there is no such extension

    It's not necessary to filter separately on each group; you can set up a
    filter that works for the entire server. In the Message Filters window,
    open the dropdown at the top, scroll down to the news server name; at
    the top of the flyout submenu is "choose this news server."

    Unfortunately, no simple way to move a filter from (say) an individual
    group to the server; the easiest way is simply to re-create it.
