I've noticed a fair bit of noise from one user on the Parent and Meta site, is there anyway to filter out users "contributions", similar to how we can filter tags?
I suspect this one user will go away, eventually, but fear that another user will just take their place...

Flag, flag, flag - it's like a red-hot poker when we log in. ;) This most recent episode is on me, I should've given up on coaxing and suspended that user a couple of days beforehand.

Treat the disease, not the symptoms, is my advice here.
If a user is so disruptive that you "need" a killfile, the problem isn't the lack of the feature.. but insufficient moderation.

There isn't a way that I know of. The noise level (like what you've seen over the past few days from one user) here isn't very consistent, so when it is, it stands out like a sore thumb and is dealt with pretty quickly.

I know how you feel. But this has been discussed on MSO, and so far this ability hasn't been added:
Add the ability to ignore users
There is a possible way to implement your own killfile mentioned in one of the answers to that question.
