Besides the "right" way to do it, I use keyboard macros all the time
for tasks like this, where it might take longer to find the right
command than to do the edit.

The keyboard macro would be:

- search for "notice"
- go to the beginning of the line
- kill the line

Issue a command to execute the macro 1000 times and you're done.

If you don't know about keyboard macros, you're missing a great emacs
feature.
