For completeness sake, this would look like this:

$ cat /etc/rsyslog.d/drop-user-messages.conf
user.* /var/log/user.log
& stop

The point here is, that those rsyslog.d snippets are included before the
rules in /etc/rsyslog.conf are processed. So you can log to user.log and
stop any further processing, i.e. avoid it ends up in syslog and messages.
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
