Option to Reject Incompletes from Header Downloads

Postby cdjones7 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 10:23 am

For recent spamming issue [like .teevee]: Along with the latest header download filtering capabilities [v6.73rc2], I'd also like the option to reject incomplete binary posts. That would filter out millions of spam headers from my daily feeds. I would have to reconstruct legitimately missing files.

The problem is all files are incomplete till they become complete. Meaning you could download headers one after the other and a file that was incomplete can become complete the next time around.

You're probably better off filtering these spam files out.

I've been on that road, and the filter setup works well except these spam headers do not "follow a predictable pattern that you can reliably match". They are randomized junk where I can't find anything common about them.
I couldn't attach a screen shot. I tried to link a Google Drive photo in my first post but it didn't work.
