MarsEdit - don't enable all post sync if you have a very large number of posts

MarsEdit 4 added a new feature — the ability to sync all posts. It didn’t work for my Blogger posts, somewhere around post 3,000-4,000 Google Blogger dies. It looks like a Google bug.

It did work for though — that has over 30,000 posts (it mirrors my pinboard shares and twitter tweets). Unfortunately that slowed MarsEdit launch severely — it took up to 3-4 minutes to start. Turns out MarsEdit loads all posts into memory and it doesn’t scale to that size.

I reset the sync to ‘last 50’ and startup is ok now.
