New Filtering System for MyHeritageDNA Matches

If you have DNA test results at MyHeritage you may find the new result filtering system just introduced useful. There's also a bit of a tweak to the interface. For information take a look at the MyHeritage blog post here.
My own MyHeritageDNA results are dominated by matches to Ashkenazi Jewish clients, many I suspect appearing closer than they are owing to endogomy and the attraction for that community to test with an Israel-based company. Even filtering for my Irish, Scottish, and Welsh ethnicity still left the matches dominated by Ashkenazi Jewish clients.
I suggest MyHeritage adopt a combined filter that allows filtering in one ethnicity and filtering out another.
