If you have chosen not to filter me as well ;>), you know that I agree
with this approach.
The advantage of this mechanism on the individual filter is that
it does not require "resources" of any kind from the user's part.
Neither human resources (the filter is updated "automatically" as the
situation evolve and the clones multiply, pretty much like an antivirus
software update), nor bandwidth/client resources at the user's site.
