only inlcude short ( but full!) news items


I''m trying to make a pipe which counts the total amount of characters, and only returns the news items with a max of (say 500 ) characters. I don't want it to cut of the description at that amount.. I just want it to only include the descreptions which are 500, or less.

all the answers I've read so far include cutting the description of at a certain amount of words or characters. I want my readers to be able to read the entire news message, but I want it to show only the short messages of 'X' or less characters.

I've tried the filter 'item description' is less than '100'
thinking it would filter out the item descriptions which exceed that amount of words.. but it didn't work.

Anybody know how to do what I'm trying to do? Help please.
