I also have this feeling that he was to blame.

I think the particlar thing he was saying was that you can tag-apply these
commands. So say you never want me to darken your doorstep again* you would
tag all the messages from me, then ;<Esc>d and presto, not just me gone, but
anyone replying to me and possibly quoting my infelicitous or infidelitous**
message. Now all you need is the brain bleach to deal with any that you'd
accidentally already read.
* Um, I think it's your turn to darken mine. But it's not conveniently close,
which might be tricky.
** I was looking for how to spell the second, and I'm still not sure how to
correctly construct the adjective from infidel via infidelity, but I came
across the first and it seemed apt too.
