Am I incorrect in thinking these two settings are inverse and should yield inverse results?Screen Shot 2016-02-08 at 3.26.31 PM.pngScreen Shot 2016-02-08 at 3.26.41 PM.png

FTR: I got the result I wanted by switching to Filter Sessions

As a session they are indeed inverse, however as a user who may contain multiple sessions this is not the case as themselves do not yield a source, only a session yields a source.
