New contacts to see older posts

So when I add a contact and assign one or more aspects to it, he/she will only see my postings from then onwards and not any older post? Seriously, why is this so in diaspora? That is totally unlogic and probably the main issue that prevents me from using it as a facebook replacement.

Hey Artur! Can you add your comment to the following thread: Reshare old posts with (new) contacts . This feature shouldn’t be hard to implement in the sense that it doesn’t require any changes to the federation protocol. We just need to get agreement on the UI.
