For what it's worth, I maintain a very small "killfile" (actually a Mutt
scoring file): it contains one caustic twit who I decided counted as a
cranky troll, whose messages get automatically marked as read. It has
included people who kept sending "out of office" replies to the list, but
I've tried a rule to get all "out of office" replies, which seems to
have been working.

A few other people who have been clue-resistant get marked down, but at
the moment, I'll still see their messages. (Actually, I probably ought
to let them out again...)

It will automatically mark as read a few threads (by subject: if someone
bothers to change the subject, the chances are the thread's changed
subject and might be worth reading).

But it's most useful because I can score *up* a small number of people
as being worth reading. They get different colours in the index and
different colour headings.

I don't include people just because they send test messages to the list!
