Default Junk filter on file size

There have been quite a bit discussion about filtering out file size, and why the filter come out the way it did, I don't understand.
I (and most others) would be so very happy if we could mark a file with ??k file size as junk, and all of those file sizes are filtered out. It seems so simple. Apparently there is more to it then that.

I have to conclude that this filter was also made for filtering out similar file names. That seems risky, since there are good files with the same file name as bad ones.

If you want to go with that, make a third pane which may be expanded with the junk files. Of course, you will then find many good files are being filtered out and you will never use the junk filter again.

That is what will happen, and what I will be doing.
