I don't know if this will help, but I have had some success with
improving filters by shortening the target text, so that the filter has
less to evaluate and does a "cor" search. BTW I assume you have the
filter for him in all groups (i.e., "*" under "target groups" on the
Advanced Options tab).
So maybe you could try just placing "faris" in a "Kill this Author"
filter for all groups, and set up similar, very simple criteria in a few
other filters to try to catch his other pseudonyms. That's what I'd do
at this point.
