Shane;

That filter will work fine to move them to a specific folder, but will 
not address the issue of easily identifying unsubscribed users. The only 
way I have ever found is to use the Delivered-To: contains moderator Tag 
[your favorite colour] construct. Unfortunately an unresolved bug in 
Thunderbird rules that out for people using it as a mail and nntp client.
