Personal Twitlist Filter (QWK)
Synchronet's Twit Filter works by processing inbound QWK packets and dropping any messages that meet the filter criteria. As it happens, this can result in downloading a packet that tosses NO messages because the few messages that are present are all filtered. You can see it happen if you watch /var/log/sbbs. This just happened to me. (Hi, Jazzman!)
Suppose you UPLOADED your twitlist with your .REP packet. Then the host system could pack your .QWK packet, filtering at_source so as to save sending unwanted packets in the first place. The twitlist could be kept as twitlist.#### or something (#### being the user-number that Jas Thud is so eager to change) for future use, until a replacement twitlist is sent in a later .REP packet.
