I agree that filtering by content is appropriate.  If you have time by all 
means have at it!  My comments about FROM were an addenda, an appendix as 
it were, not a duodenum* in your metaphoric lower GI.

I thought the Ivory Coast lady hoot was being truly!

By the way, in the words of Yoda: "Learn Forth quickly will I"

*  [Middle English, from Medieval Latin, short for intestnum duodnum 
digitrum, intestine of twelve finger-widths (in length), from
   Latin duodnum, genitive pl. of duodn, twelve each, from duodecim, 
twelve. See duodecimal.]
