Is it possible to use Gmail filters to Mute a conversation?

I've tried using a filter to Skip the Inbox, but when someone else replies to the original email it ends up in the Inbox again.

Did you try using the "mute conversation" feature? – Al E. Feb 5 '11 at 3:09
What I am trying to avoid is having to hit mute conversation on every conversation that fits the filter criteria. That's why I want to use filters. Unfortunately it looks like Gmail Filters do not support mute. – Gil Milow Feb 8 '11 at 22:37
Is it not possible to extend your filter to include the replies? – w3dk Aug 2 '13 at 19:26
"Skip the Inbox" should work. What are you filtering on? – Al E. Sep 30 '14 at 0:51

You are correct, it is not possible to use a filter to mute conversations.
