Don't remember the post on problems, but here are some factors to consider:
Softeners are very effective and make very soft water (No hardness). That tends to make it difficult to remove suds. Municipal systems usually blend soft and hard water to deliver something on the order of 80 to 120 mg/liter of hardness. That is a little tricky for the system in your basement.
Softening replaced the calcium in your water with sodium. If you are sensitive to sodium, that can be a problem, Usually, you don't drink enough water for it to matter.
Very soft water can be more corrosive than hard water. You want to check your pH and may have to deal with corrosive water.
You should have a water test to understand all of the issues with your water. Look especially for hardness, iron, manganese, pH, magnesium, nitrates, nitrites, total dissolved solids, and coliform bacteria. Sometimes they will report a corrossivity index for which the ideal result is 0 to +0.5. If it is negative the water is corrosive, if more positive you may get scaling.
Sometimes people run a line to the sink to use unsoftened water for drinking because they like the taste better.
