I do have wanttrash set to true. I wasn't sure if that would affect
whether or not articles matching the pattern would be accepted or if it
trumps all other avenues of filtering.

I realize that I will still be accepting the articles, but would prefer
not to propagate them to downstream peers. I can control that in the
newsfeeds file, but in the situation I had yesterday it would have been
easier to just add an exclude pattern to the one inbound peer who was
feeding me those unwanted articles.
