If that is the case, why when "Authenticated users" is in the list, it 
applies to *every* user on those machines? Right now it behaves as 
expected but I just won't  be able to add more that 6 entities to the 
list when I finally need to. The 7th one I try to add is *no* different 
to any of the other's I added before.

There also is no option to change anything with regard to "read" or 
"apply" in security filtering.

When it's a loopback policy, according to MS you have to either add 
either "Domain Computers", a particular computer account, or a group of 
computer accounts. This works for me, until I will have to add more than 
6 groups or accounts!
