How do I search for ALL CAPS?

Postby insolution » Sat Jul 24, 2010 3:19 pm

A lot of the spam I am not catching with word or poster settings have subject lines in all caps. How can I use RegEx or a filter to catch these?

For example I want to catch:

THIS IS A SPAM POST

but not:

This is a SPAM POST

It would be helpful to be able to ignore x number of characters/spaces from the beginning or the end of the line.

I also tried [A-Z][A-Z][A-Z][A-Z][^a-z] to catch subjects where there are four caps in a row but that still shows posts with lower case letters.

I have search Google and tried some of the examples and the ones in this forum but can't seem to get what I want. I am using the Display search box to test the expressions...maybe that's the issue?

No you can't sorry. Everything gets mapped to lower case.
