    So, I know you can block a user, but can you block a thread so it doesn't show up?

    I don’t mean this snarky, but why would you need to block a thread when you can simply not click on it if you don’t want to see the contents ?

    If the thread is one you have responded to, you can "unwatch" the thread. I've done that a number of times myself.

    No snarkiness taken. :D Because there is a specific thread that keeps popping up in "recent posts" that I'm tired of seeing. IMO, it was fine at first but has become a bit of a circus. Yeah, I can just not click on it, but if there was a way to block it from coming up on my screen, I would do it. It's all about me, dontcha know?!? Lol

    If you put the OP member on ignore, it will make the thread disappear for you (as well as any other threads and posts by the OP). That's the only way to make the forum do it for you.

    Thanks @kronin323. That's the thing, I don't want to ignore everything by the OP, just this one thread...in it's entirety.

    I'm guessing the dog attack one. That's a whole lot of hot emotions accomplishing absolutely nothing aside from getting people worked up.

    Sorry, you'll have to just look the other way, then.

    A compromise would be to put the OP on ignore for a couple days or a week. I'd hope that'd be enough time for the thread to fade away and then you can unignore the guy and the thread's a non-issue.

    I have no idea how to block a specific thread, but I promise to strip this forum down to it's base metal and look at it through a microscope. I'm sure there's an imperfection somewhere that I can try to exploit.

    So, I showed self restraint and didn’t do more than read the title in the list of threads. It has nothing to do with this forum, so... Why does it keep happening?
    Now I have to look. Maybe pop some popcorn...

    I don't think so... but I wish you could block entire sub-forums as well as individuals. might be worth putting in the 'suggestion' sub-forum.

    You can suggest anything you want but please understand that we don’t write the software here. So most likely what you see is what you get.

    ok... didn't realize it was a code level change... sometimes there are simple check-box options for admins to allow/disallow permissions like that.

    Some things are, not everything. There are many things I wish we could do here that we can’t do without adding code.

    Oh, that thread. It appears to be one of those threads whose intent is to incite a riot or stir up trouble. It’s not the only one I would block if we had the option. Better to block than be goaded into a fight and get banned. It’s hard to keep on ignoring when you’re ticked off.
