Nothing big going on here. I'm just filtering pubs from my active connections in Patchwork, since the 10 or so room connections I have at all times apparently already do a much better job of feeding/seeding my local DB with relevant info than the pubs do.
Wish there was a button to turn pub discovery off, might make one myself next week during H> and open a pull-req.. who knows.

There are config options that should do this. There are also RPC commands for it (These update the config):
sbot gossip.disable global- Disable connecting to pubs ("global gossip")
sbot gossip.disable pub- Disable scanning db for
sbot gossip.disable friends- Disable connecting to friends - Might be needed or not, I'm not sure
