Filter generally implies removing things.
Perhaps "subscription" would be better here?
Agreed. In early development, they were called 'chains' (as in 'a
chain of rules'), but it was decided that that made even less sense.
In future releases I hope to add toggle switches to the things that
are now called 'filters' so that they can be made positive or
negative and conjunctive or disjunctive ('all' versus 'any').
