In the last few weeks I've practiced frequent StackExchange activities, and it's enjoyable, rewarding, and above all, educational for me.
But I'm finding, the more I use the system, I've had repeated comment-exchanges and watched others' answers, with the same users. And I'm getting a sense for some individual users, people who have insight into topics I've liked to read. Others, I've found are asking more-or-less for repeated "do my homework" type questions. Plus I've spotted some patterns of voting.
I'd like to know if there's a function somewhere on the site that provides a filtering of interactions with other users.
There are lots of places in the SE web interface that I'm still exploring, and may have missed such a feature if it exists. The Inbox is great but only filters by question.
Also, a related but slightly distinct point would be, if I could associate my own private notes with particular questions/answers/users, to give me a context of past interaction on the fly.
