Well to set up that example as an alist you would do something like this in
your .gnus file. I guess the fine art in this is to construct a regular
expression which will catch the banners you are tryng to kill off.
;; Alist of mail addresses and banners. Each element has the
;; form (ADDRESS . BANNER), where ADDRESS is a regexp to match a
;; mail address in the From: header, BANNER is one of a symbol
;; `signature', an item in `gnus-article-banner-alist', a regexp and
;; nil. If ADDRESS matches author's mail address, it will remove
;; things like advertisements. For example:
; Yahoo - This regular expression should be reasonably stable, and
; reasonably safe.
'(("@yahoo\\.com" . "^__________________+\nDo you Yahoo!\\?\n.*\n.*\n")
; Hotmail - Not very much can be matched, so this could be dangerous.
; Should be reasonably stable though.
; The other option is to use a much less stable value, and
; update it frequently.
; Netscape - Very unstable value, not much else can be done though.
; Unless a more stable value can be found, it seems the
; best way to maintain this is to OR updated regexps with
; this value.
Network.*\n.*\n.*\n\n.*AOL Instant Messenger.*\n.*\n")))
