Can a specific thread/subforum be blocked?

    We have a "Watch thread" option, I was wondering if there's an opposite function that blocks or "ignores" a specified thread or subforum? Occasionally there are threads that I would not need or want to see again--sometimes you just get worn out on a topic, ya know?

    I tried White Out but it made a mess of my screen. Then my brunette friend came along and wrote on top of it, anyway dunno.gif

    I've wondered about this, too. I don't play the games, so I've been going to that forum and marking it read before going anywhere else. There are also other threads that I don't want to revisit or comment in.

    The Politics thread can get pretty heated as well. I have to admit, although I mark the Football thread, I am not really into football, either

    Gosh it would be neat if the top ten threads were about Stephen King instead of Obama: Satan Or Savior?

    Seriously, though, I'm not sure what the answer is to your question other than just not reading that thread but will see if I can find an answer as to an Ignore thread possibility.

    Just got one--it might pay for the extra heartburn medicine I'm going to have to buy after the past few days. ;)

    Which may explain the recent flare up of needing more heartburn medicine than usual. ;)

    That's a good idea marking a forum read. I'd never done that before but it does clear it out for a while. I don't read the game ones too often, so marking it read works well. Thanks.

    All you gotta do is click on the last page of a thread and it marks all of the unread posts as 'read'.

    Yeah, but if you go to the forum page, you can also mark the entire forum read.

    I use my method because there are certain threads that I have never even ventured into and have pages and pages to them.

    Yeah, that works.....but I don't want to take all the time to click on every thread individually.

    I can ignore the threads, it's that pesky 'new post' counter at the top that really gets under my skin. I can't handle the pressure of it up there, staring at me, judging me, taunting me with its counts....:lol:

    I mark all the threads 'read' as soon as I log-on because seeing the new post count is pretty overwhelming for me. I usually know right away which threads I wish to read by the people I follow. There’s a lot I avoid because most often I’ve read about it or scanned over it elsewhere, I don't care to debate . . .it just increases your blood-pressure, nor do I care to piss and moan, or just bitch about headlines in the news.
    I feel for the Mods. They can’t skip anything. That’s gotta be tough.
