Allow partial days in show post special

Postby mjpierce » Mon Jan 30, 2017 11:14 am

On my 32 bit machine, unfiltered spammers make loading even one day unusable (runs out of memory).

I'd like to see decimals allowed in the show post specials. Like .5 to 0 for half a days post. or 1.25 to .5 and so on.
This could greatly help to isolate new spam subjects for the download filter.

Might be better off filtering them out. Or using our search engine.

I'm talking about a way to see what new filter needs to be added. I know of no way to know except after the offending headers are downloaded.

With partial days a person could open a fraction of a day just to see what the offending headers are, add to the download filter, clear the group(s) stored posts, then re-download headers with the improved filter.

I've seen a lot of "Just use our search engine". Last I saw (and I could be wrong) that costs extra money.

searching is free. You only have to pay if you want to be able to download from the search results.
