Why create a view that does not include everything?

I am 3:40 into "1.3 google analytics setup" and don't understand, as a small business owner, why I would ever want a view that does not include everything. Sure a limited view for somebody else might be useful. But for the owner I'd want to see everything and then filter out what is not useful. Or is this section just describing how to setup for others and not the owner?

 

And why a captcha here? We already have had to sign in to post right? And furthermore I just saw that Google has come out with a better captcha system that stays out of your face: https://www.extremetech.com/internet/245685-googles-new-bot-stopping-recaptcha-completely-invisible

For filtering, we use it to filter out visits by our own team so that the reports are not skewed.  It might not be a need for you.
