search parameters

Hi. Curious why "picture" groups are not included in the "paid for" search parameters? I just noticed that wording in the Newsbin search function. Thanks. Hope all is well.

The picture groups have never been in the search engine primarily because of performance concerns. Secondarily, because we worry about cataloging illegal content though most of that it no longer posted to usenet. We're talking about adding it in these days.
