Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > For instance only applying the "reset" after an update is posted and not
 when the update box is clicked. Then when an user refresh the page it goes
 back to how he/she has set it. I just don't think it's a good idea to
 hijack/overwrite something that can be set by the user.

 I agree that doing *something* is important for the reasons imath notes,
 but I also agree with Bowromir's statement here: we can do better than
 just removing the filters. The natural interface to me (setting aside how
 hard it would be to implement for the time being) seems like:

 1. I click an activity filter tab - say, My Groups
 2. I decide to post an update, so I click in the box, type, and submit
 3. If the posted update is germane to the current filter (in this case, if
 I decided to post it in one of my groups using the "post in group"
 dropdown), it goes directly onto the activity stream as per normal
 4. If the posted update does *not* belong in the current filter, I am
 taken to "All" where I can see the update stream into the sitewide stream

 Not sure how to do this with our current implementation.

 > What I'd like to propose is showing an message when a filter is
 activated and display that before the stream starts:

 Bowromir, I like this idea very much. Sorta like dynamic breadcrumbs. Can
 I ask you to put it in a separate enhancement ticket when you've got more
 to say about it?
