Bug Description

As it stands now you only have "remote-content-search" 'all or 'none'
That seems overly permissive or restrictive
Users should have the choice to allow some scopes to do remote searches & disallow others as they see fit.

But... you already have the ability to go through and enable or disable any or all remote scopes individually through the dash by clicking on their enable/disable button in the filters pane. What is missing?

I agree, while not that obvious (applications lens > Dash plugins >

(not sure that was available when bug was filed in june, certainly a
moot point now..

It does highlight a small bug that I can't file on atm (slightly modified unity install),

When progressing thru the Dash plugins with the forward arrow >, it hangs/loops on colorlovers which is showing 2 entries, loops on 2nd one.
