It is checked
Can I ASSume from your reply that there is no limit to the number of "OR"
conditions I can put in any one rule? Some of mine are around 15 and
growing.
Handmade example:
DELETE if contains "tax" or "##" or "<>"
STOP PROCESSING

There is no limit to the # of words, or phrases, ( well,
actually 4,096), but too many conditions could cause
confusion. I would make separate rules for different actions.
Also, some characters aren't recognized.

Thank you Bruce. Just for info. I have them separated as you suggest. One
newsgroup in particular has a lot of porn ads and they are usually followed
by a mix of symbols. I have the below to delete them.

Apply this rule after the message arrives

Where the Subject line contains '@' or '^' or '%' or '*'' or ''*' or '**' or
'...' or ',,,' or '((' or '!!' or '{' or '}' or '>' or '<' or '='

Delete it

and Stop processing more rules
