Agreed it is more "low impact" right now to the end user and displays greater surgical exactitude in it's intent and execution.

Perhaps a toggle wouldn't be out of the question. I would prefer to nerf something utterly transparent and ephemeral however. like hosts or something. Any thoughts on making it a bit more "ghost-like" to the next major update. I should go check the last few hash checks for the Touch updates. no doubt hosts was on this list. Or now I've typed this - if it isn't currently it will be soon. lol.

So yeah. great work. good thoughts.
making it bullet-proof and end-user resistant, discuss : D
