    Set up a filter for the newsserver (or just a single newsgroup, which
    only works with TBird 1.5 and above) named "kill" or something else.
    Copy the email of the unwanted poster(s) and paste it into the filter
    as "from" - "is".
    Select as actions "mark as read" and "delete message".

    This only works for new incoming messages.
    If you want to remove older messages you've got to remove the
    *.msf-file of the corresponding newsgroup or newsserver in your
    TBird-Profile. This way all the messages are loaded again and
    marked as unread.
