So when I do this, in the list the posts matching this filter are "highlighted".
The biggest problem is figuring out what constitutes valid. does S?\dx?\d mean something? To me, it does. But a large part of the problem is the speed to add new filters.
Used to be that these guys would restrict their massive postings to small files (bandwidth constraints probably) but now they seem to have no trouble posting hundreds of gigabyte posts a day. Not always, but often, their posts, though large, are not multi-part posts and I'm wondering whether it's possible to sort, filter, or otherwise separate multi-parts from singletons. No poster that I'm interested in is posting 500 Mb in a single post - they're all multi-part posts and being able to easily separate out these large single-part posts would be very helpful.

If we could exclude a string from the message id then all these annoying posters would be removed in one swoop. Hell, I'd even take a poster white list at this point. Either way, the current implementation makes some of my group subscriptions a huge ball-ache to read every morning. Anything you can do to change that would be most welcome.
Filters and blocking will always be a moving target.
Email blacklisting is better than nothing, but not by much.

I assume this has something to do with the fact, that autopar, like Quickpar, renames the files to their real names even if Newsbin or the poster has named them something else?
No, I added more ideas, but this was a one too many "no", that is true, it's not like I'm hiding my discontent so why bring it up anyway. Here you go again, rationalizing things away or not acknowledging a problem -
(Yes I'm angry but I had enough of hearing "no's" and bullshit workarounds but in the mean time facing the same challenges for years now).
