Did somebody actually write that?  I didn't.

I was incautious in my phrasing.  By "filter out" I meant to imply
"into a list at the bottom".  If you are checking explicitly, ISTM
it's more convenient to have a compact list at the bottom of the page
to check, rather than looking for the action interleaved with all the
messages.  But when interlined, most of the time "nosy += me" really
is just noise, and when you get 20 in a row, it's quite annoying.
