[uf-dev] Displaying hidden microformat in Operator (and elsewhere)

I agree with Brian that there should be a well defined description of what
is considered "hidden."
Why not have it both ways? A little checkbox (or preference... whatever)
for "hide non-visible" with an attached filter would be far more useful than
removing the chance to see all results. Down the line, an editable filter
system (maybe like adblock?) would allow people
to confine their results to what they are specifically looking for.
