Glad to hear it's "working" well enough.
As far as stuff in the sidebar goes, the primary point of this feature is to curb the "firehose" of "news" that comes through the main page and RSS feed to conform to your preferences. The rest of the site will act as normal, including selecting a category filter at the top of the main page, the promoted content at the top, notifications, "forum" topics, and searching. You can also still physically go to any story you want if you know the url.
You are correct that false positives/negatives are on RMC to properly label stuff appropriately.
