Funny though, I'm somehow reading you loud and clear at this end.
Maybe I'm stranded in some remaining pocket of moderation?

Well, since we aren't throwing away the baby or the bathwater, there
is bathwater. Is that a surprise?
Local filtering options have not been taken away.
If most of the messages you don't want are from the same three people.
you can filter them out based on the From: header.
If most of the unwanted messages are in the same thread, you can use a
threaded mail reader which folds all of them into a single UI item that
can be selected and deleted in one stroke.
You can set up a rule that turfs messages based on Subject: line.
