Summary0003571: Notification options: add option to effectively blacklist "no group" (filter its files from notifies)
DescriptionIt is currently not possible to blacklist "no group" (to block its notifications). Attempting to do so fails because "no group" is gid 0 and blacklisting gid 0 is not allowed. This results in a massive amount of irrelevant, spurious notifications any time someone decides to add a boatload of such files to the DB, thereby not only wasting the user's time but, more concerningly, potentially burying legitimate notifications in a sea of unblockable trash.

I have over 200 blacklisted groups, which is a fair amount yet not that much. Not once have I received an actually relevant "no group" notification, but every week I receive a handful of irrelevant ones, and I cannot for the life of me get rid of them. Ideally, I'd like to have them sent to a different interface that handles them a little better, but I'm sure that would imply a lot more work and getting rid of them would already create a large improvement over the current situation.

Please add an option that filters gid 0 from notifications, which effectively amounts to blacklisting "no group". Alternatively, if that's easier, accept gid 0 as a valid blacklist target.
