Here are some processing rules from one of my USENET newsgroups:

newsgroups regexpcase "(advocacy)|(microsoft)" color 3
header "Organization" matchcase "google" change_score -20
headers_part matchcase ".hispeed.ch" delete
headers_part matchcase "hull lug" color 4
header "Message-ID" matchcase "@4ax.com" change_score -20
age_greater 10 change_score -15
enabled rulename "" score_lower -5 mark_as_read
enabled rulename "" ignore_thread mark_as_read
enabled rulename "" ignore_thread color 8
enabled rulename "" marked color 2
enabled rulename "" newsgroups matchcase "," color 15
enabled rulename "" age_greater 49 change_score -20
enabled rulename "" score_lower -27 & ~marked delete

You just decide what you want to happen at various score levels and
then setup your rules accordingly.
