I see some use in private messages and closed groups, but I hope the scuttleverse will remain primarily a public place. The notion of social distance is a good criterion for getting relevant content and maintaining informal communities. I prefer this to closed groups with binary exclusion/inclusion. Readable relevant content is the incentive to replicate feeds. As this is what keeps the network alive I'm worried that too much private content could endanger the contribution of resource to the network.
