On thing I find is really missing for noise control is a per circle option "show in Home Stream". That way I could create a "Too Noisy" circle and turn off the "show in Home Stream" for people that I want to follow now and then (like +Robert Scoble
) but which have such a huge output that they totally swamp the home stream.
I know I can work around this right now by creating a "My Home Stream" circle and putting everyone (beside the noise sources) that I got in any circle also into this one. But that's a lot more work than just turning off some Circles for the normal Home Stream.
