I do too, and it's my hope that will continue.

Would it be possible to not see #spam unless someone who you follow shares it? That way trust is enforced but false-positives would have much lesser rate of occurrence. And if someone does share actual #spam you can just unfollow them. That way building any network that reinforces shared spam will get much easier to extract.

It's not a bad functionality, however it would break the way that filtering/following works in all other cases. As it is, filter overrides follow. I think changing that for one tag would be confusing.

Would you mind giving me a code snippet/file-line from git that deals with it? I'm attempting to get to know the code from Github but it takes some time since I know only basic Racket.

If this is possible without being clunky and intrusive it could have value.
