Currently, there are 2 selects package_name[] and package_nname[].

These select are having too many options. Selecting all packages in both of them results in a 24KB GET request which the web server denies.

Also it makes IMHO no sense to have both as there is no logical reason to have 2 selects as they are AND in the SQL.

Instead as little mitigation use a simple NO checkbox there.

The SQL uses then 

NOT IN(packagelist) instead of


in the WHERE conditions.

Beside simpler form, the requests are now max half the size, around 12KB.
Also too big to be handled by web server, but a step forward.

Actual result:
Search form is more complex than necessary.
