In Real Life, a killfile is a setting in most Usenet newsreaders that allows one to block certain posters or topics (similar to Tumblr Savior and other blacklist extensions).

Within the Looniverse, killfiles can do a heck of a lot more. Killfile Energy impedes the net.element of thread, and is used by many characters – most of them villains. Indeed, the LNH, as a setting for stories, came about when a poster on rec.arts.comics calling themselves Doctor Killfile threatened to destroy the net.heroes.
