Feature idea

[chan] bitmessage

In blacklist, ability to blacklist incoming messages based on size and image content. Any messages over a user specified size from 32 bytes upward could be blacklisted. Instead of a slider just have a number entry box with a default like 1024 bytes. (size not counting payload's protocol data). Automatically detect MIME encodings like base64 so user can block images. I really feel no need to send or receive images. Bitmessage is a really bad option for that anyway due to size limitations and lengthy PoW. I'd like to automagically block all large messages and images. No doubt others would like to do the same.

already done. look at "spamfilter" fork by torifier. of course, it was rejected from pyBM. but wth (what the heck) they say no pull request was ever done LOL

Why don't you get together with torifier and continue developing that fork?

Blocking based on size could also lead to false positives (e.g. lengthy rants) and thread backlogs. Another idea would be black-/whitelisting based on regex.

How about regex and size? That's a winner.
