No worries, better to ask than to be left wondering why it's behaving in a way that seems incorrect.

Trying to filter the entire feed is probably even more resource intensive than simply building up an independent list of all the URs in a given area as per URMPT (or to a lesser extent, the UR backfilling functionality within URO+), because whilst scripts can quite easily obtain all of the UR data they need just by performing their own data requests to the WME servers, these requests have no effect on the information shown in the WME feed itself.

To fully populate the feed list with every single entry would require URO+ to auto-click on the "Load More" button until the server stopped sending new entries. This in itself would cause a significant amount of requests to be generated (a single UR data request can return data for up to 500 entries, whereas a single feed request returns data for no more than 20...), and on top of that WME would then also be trying to render the ever growing list of entries, which sooner or later would likely result in something breaking under the strain.

So TBH, if you want a full filterable overview of all URs etc. within your area, then URMPT is the tool to use. Feed filtering is a complementary feature provided as a way to enhance the native feed without trying to turn it into something it wasn't designed to be.
