Seems to me that the distinction to be made here is between activity
which might, to some, appear a waste of time (eg setting flags and versions
on existing calls) but which at worst provides no benefit and in fact
might help someone narrow down a search more easily; and activity
which is simply flatus vocis and which actually distracts or irritates.

Individuals' thresholds clearly vary.
