If you opened up the LWN codebase you'd probably already had several people sending in the necessary patches to implement Spaleta filtering.
If I'm going to be a broken record about the advantages of opening up Launchpad as a way for Ubuntu users to fix community facing processes without having to wait for Canonical to do it.... you're going to get a dose of it as well. Stop screwing around and open up the LWN code so LWN users can create the feature to filter me out.
Here's an idea, make a commitment to release the codebase of LWN when Canonical releases the codebase for Launchpad. Right now that's November of next year.
