Is there a chance we can get the option to block entire catagories same as threads? At least so it does not show in our recent posts page?

That's not a bad idea. It might be an option in the not-too-distant future.

Please consider it, I'm sure plenty of people would like to do so. I try to avoid some things for goodwill but when they pop into recent posts it can draw you in.

Plus 1 vote from here as well.

And considering we are on opposites of the political spectrum, surely it must be a no brainer :D

I should block any thread with a misspelled header. :P

Nah--I don't block anyone or anything.

Me too. I want to avoid political topics beacuse people are oh so sensitive these days but lots of politics discussed here, and it's easy to get sucked in. I'll prob get sucked in eventually haha.

I think this is a bad idea. It makes a thread more valuable when many people of different opinions or thoughts contribute. This seems to be just a lazy way to have people avoid topics that they might find challenging or upsetting. That is never a good way to go.

The not too distant future never happened yet, so doubt it ever will.
