    can't filter out one aspect of my friends/acquaintances in real life, so it's nice to take the same approach here.
I definitely disagree. Tomorrow I am having friends over to watch the World Cup Final. There are certain friends I've not invited because they are just not interested in that sort of thing, though I think they'd come over if I invited them. I have essentially "filtered" them.

I go see music and there are certain friends in my life I would never invite to join me. They may think they're music fans but IMO, their taste sucks. So I don't invite them, I "filter" them. Honestly, and I'm not just trying to "sell this" but this helps my Hubski experience be more like my IRL friendships.

As for the buzz kill of filtering, for those two hypothetical real-life friends I just mentioned, each has at least a dozen aspects of them that I'd gladly "follow" and when I do, they get a notification (my meataphor is now a digiphor) and they're happy -yay, positive.

    Maybe it won't. Probably it won't. But I don't mind being the shrill voice in these threads piping in about unintended consequences re tools that allow for nullification
actually, seems the norm this far in this thread. I'd be really keen on hearing suggestions on improvements etc.

    Site's still sex no matter what.
thanks pal, you know I think you're the Shizzle.

Any new music to share? Geez. Been a while.
