Though this thread is a year old, it relates to a larger suggestion I've been mulling over about how LS interrupts tasks. Perhaps a feature could be developed to allow silent mode to be invoked when certain applications are in the foreground. While watching movies is one obvious one. But sometimes the interruption is more than annoying. For instance, if I'm making a selection in Photoshop and a background process triggers LS, the alert dialogue interrupts my selecting. That's infuriating if it's a complex selection, which is quite frequent, and some busybody little app (or Google or Apple) decides it wants to peek in on what you're doing.
I LOVE Little Snitch and it's also been very educational. And I can't see uninstalling it. But because of the growing incidents of nosy apps and websites trying to access my network, the alerts are becoming more than a nuisance. They're interfering with my productivity and my good mood.
We really do need a scheme that keeps LS alerts from interrupting our activities. I understand that for many connection attempts, the rule must be decided to allow the connection to continue. But an attempt from an app trying to check for updates, or Apple or Google deciding to look over my shoulder is not important enough to pop up a dialogue that interrupts my work.
Ideally, I'd LOVE an option to have the alerts operate as they do now, or to do something attention-seeking but in the background like flashing an icon in the menu bar. That would catch my attention but allow me to finish what I'm doing without losing my place. Then I could click the icon and address the connection attempt.
