Why on earth would I want to change the status on the Unread filter to New?
There's already a "new" filter for that.

I know how it is _supposed_ to work. Hiding posts according to Score,
however, doesn't work.
I have both the Unread and New filters modified to operate on "Single
Articles", and include only scores >=0, and posts routinely appear with
negative scores. Incidentally, the KNode manual says that Ignoring threads
operates by setting the score to -100 so that the thread can't be seen. That
doesn't work either - ignoring a thread hides it _now_ but any future posts
in the thread will be shown - just like changing the score for an author.
