	It should.

	The rule ':0:' is used to not to continue on to the next rule
	if there is a match on the test. So think of it as.

	if {$TO_ADDRESS == "*olpc-social@googlegroup.com") {

	if you use ":0" then it is test the next rule in your
	.procmailrc file. Typical if you use a number of rules with
	the ":0" format then the very last rule in your file would
	be ":0:". Thank of it as the end of a large cast statement.

	Speaking of procmail. From my understanding this project is
	really no longer being maintained. But if you ask around it
	is still being used. If someone is looking for a project for
	school, Procmail could really use a rewrite.
