User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0
Build ID: 20170125172221

Steps to reproduce:

There are quite a few topics in a prolific news (RSS) feed I read that I would consider 'junk' (e.g. "sports" news).

It would be great if Thunderbird kept a separate Junk filter that I could train on a per-feed basis.  It would need to be separate since what I consider junk email is very different from what I consider junk news.

Apparently the Junk filter used to be enabled on feeds (13 years ago!) but it was removed to solve a problem where new feed items would get marked as spam.  The language is spotty in these bugs, seemingly with some key words missing, but that's the gist.

Severity: normal → enhancement
the challenge, to avoid a repeat of bug 270274, is this would likely require a separate training file for RSS. Essentially bug 194914 is needed
