I don't know how this "gradually pushing away"-thing should work, but for me it's already some weeks and I still get the recommendations, that I don't want. I especially agree with Simon that it is irritating to get recommendations about stuff I can't watch in my country. It's even more irritating to get recommendations from someone, who doesn't share my taste. There are Videos and Music I don't want in my Boxee, not even as a recommendation thubnail.</p> Wed, 02 Dec 2009 16:16:49 +0200 support.boxee.tv/forums/117565-social-networking/posts.rss:117565:43972:167137 Nachtelf Irokese http://support.boxee.tv/entries/43972-who-is-avner "Who is Avner?" in Social networking - comment added by Jeffrey Blank <p>Whats itrritating is for a web site to say you can unfollow Avner, but if you do a Search for How to Unfollow Avner or Someone, it says"No results". If you are going to say you can do something, how about saying how to do it, not hide the instructions.

I though "Ooh! Star Trek - the original sreies, I'll have some of that."</p> <p>But alas, no.</p> <p>I've 'unfollowed' him now. Perhaps I'm too old (at 39!), but I find the whole 'social' internet thing  (facebook, twitter, blah, blah,) a bit boring.
