Hrrm, didn't seem to work for me.  I see it on the webpage in my
nycbug label section but I didn't get it in my gmail inbox.

Hakim, did you have better luck?  If so, would you give your exact
steps?  (I can't see the label being made before the filter making a
difference, especially since it seems as if it's doing what they say
it'll do, putting it in the label section.  Or, did you add to filter
options to put it into the inbox.  The only filter option I chose was
to apply the label.
