Alphabet Soup

Seems like everything in the a.b.teevee board is coming in as {PRIVATE}with all letters and numbers. Any rhyme or reason for this? Is there some kind of decoding method I'm missing?

I'm still seeing a bunch that aren't "Private".

Throw a 200 Mbyte minimum size filter filter on the group when you display it.

I added a new filter to my header download filter which removes any posts from "Private" before it even hits the disk.

"\[private\]"

Should work.

"Delete all posts by poster" is a good idea too.
