Maybe a loop, or duplicate posts (like the same page but 
with ?foo=next or ?foo=previous) ; you'll have to check how 
message links "look like"

At a first glance, exclude everything but images, and then 
select the desired thread ; for example 1234, and do not 
get "flat views" (the end must be t=XXX) :

Set Options / Scan rules:

-* +*.gif +*.png +*.jpg +*.css +*.js*t=1234*[]

(replace 1234 by the desired thread it, that is, the number 
in t=XXX)
