I like this idea, but am conscious that people don’t want to have to micromanage it (similar to the idea of auth fatigue).
Probably there will end up being some ‘filter list as a service’. Project decorum calls it moderation as a service and they totally nailed the concept
I think this model of ‘using curated lists’ to suit your needs is going to be a very big deal on the safe network, not just for analytics but for the filtering of any content. This has already begun to happen on the internet - most adblockers offer a range of filter lists from EasList.
It means end-users must trust the people providing the list, but the benefit is it’s trivial to modify the filter (or completely change to a different list) if it isn’t filtering to your tastes. Put your
money list-choice where your mouth is. Vote with your choice of list. Data (ie the filter list) is power.
I envisage a service offering ‘set theory’ list creation, where users can easily combine different lists using the set operators (union, intersection etc) and perhaps combined with a tagging / metadata system… this would be a very powerful service. A bit more general than analytics… but ‘analytics’ might be one type of list among many others.
