A practical demonstration of this would be something like this:
* Filter= Also,address1,address2,address3 etc.
* Filter= address7,address8 etc.
* Filter= address13 etc.
and you can use wildcards ( like * ).

Just in case this isn't clear, most nodes running the LISTERV program have
more than one list. Filters which you install for your particular list
apply only to your list.
On the other hand (anyone correct me if I'm wrong) some commands are for
all lists at the node. I know that at a number of nodes where my wife and
I are subscribed to different lists, from the same address, how the mail
is addressesd (output of commands) depends on who subscribed to a list at
that node first. The "name" is pulled out of the records and used
regardless of to which list your commmand pertains. And personal
passwords are for all lists at the node, not just the list in question,
