Good point, and from this point forward, all my meager Sprinter contributions will be posted in the Danger Zone.

"Meager Sprinter contributions" are your keywords. I won't miss them.

To try to address the DZ posts issue Sikwan has made a change which excludes DZ posts from the New Thread search.

I never use the New Post function. Some reasonable feedback over the next couple days as to whether it is working or not would be helpful.

Does this simply do the same thing as simply blocking DZ using the above-described block-sub-thread feature?

While you are tinkering, please, please consider adding "ignore thread". This feature is available in many other vBulletin sites. It is key to making the "New Posts" feature efficient.

Doesn't show "New Posts" but still shows in "Today's Post."

I don't understand what all the whinnying is about??? If a person doesn't like a the title of a "Politically Charged Topic" why not simply ignore and skip over it???

If I have observed anything about human nature, is most people aren't happy unless their bitching about something and I am no exception.

Ignore feature is for dummies.

Well, I don’t read every single post anyway, and am very selective about which topics and from whom I read. I don’t read the posts about bull-bars, because I’m not interested in adding one. (Nothing against bull-bars mind you; I’m just not interested in them.) I do read the topics about towing, because I do tow and am interested in the subject. Topics with a political subject I skip like I do the bull bars. I choose to read most of what I see from lindenengineering, because I respect Dennis' wisdom and his experience base that far exceeds my own "n of one".

I don’t expect this forum to house only what *I* want to see, and I don’t want it limited only to that. It's like a buffet: I’ll take what I want, and if I don’t want an item, I’ll leave it for someone else who does. I have the blessing of a capacity to exercise selectivity.

Well stated!

BTW, speaking of Bull Bars, Mercedes does not recommend ANY aftermarket contraptions installed on the front of the vehicle. Just saying.
