Although I hate the crap as much as anybody, the filters work fine for me, and I support a reasonable amount of tolerance for those with outlying tastes, as long as they are manifest in the correct venues.

I do have one feature wishlist item for the forum: It would be really, really great to be able to hide particular topics. There are many threads that I know I will never be interested in, and making them go away would be wonderful. It makes NEW POSTS searches far more practical. Some other forum systems have this feature and it is truly great.

I realize that this is a forum-software level request, but perhaps it could be passed along...

Thanks to our intrepid moderator(s) for taking "tone" issues seriously. I know how much work it is.

Are you talking about "marking the threads as read?"

No. What I would like is to be able to totally "hide" a thread, so that messages from it (including "new" messages) do not ever appear, either in the Topic List or in a "new messages" search. It would be just like hiding a user, but is "per thread" rather than "per user".

I am pretty sure vBulletin does not have this feature, but it should.

Perhaps there is a way to evoke a "UN-subscribe to this thread" button/feature, along the line of the "Subscribe" one shown here:

I'd be all in favour!

X2, I have seen the great O insult many people outside of the off topic area. Most of you must be blind or foolish to give him the benefit of the doubt. No wonder we have the worst politicians controlling things.

BTW, O has moderator privileges on this thread so it will disappear because he is too biased to face the facts.

Heya, Seek. Just discovered this thread. Been a while, glad you remain here now.

.... Heya, Hal. You're acting with authority. You a moderator now? Real question, no trolling.

Based on the existence of this and other similar threads, I'm convinced we don't actually have ANY moderators.

.... Am respectfully disagreeing. Seek moderates well, the offending posts (offending to many) are contained within sub-forums here that are easy to ignore &, as aptly pointed out here in this thread, dealt with further if so desired.

.... Am admitting to being one who years ago initially questioned Seek as to why all the disrespect, innuendo, accusations & generally unpleasant, adolescent behaviors were even allowed anywhere here in the first place. He calmly & clearly stated his position & clamps down when the chaos infects elsewhere here other than where it's designated. As a consequence, most every legit Sprinter vehicle sub-forum here remains clean & Seek's wisdom is to be respected, in my estimation, as every other message board one sees out here has this problem of crap postings.

.... But when one may wish to join the fray... maybe your better half just got back from power shopping (you know, when she has an unlimited budget & exceeds it?) & you want to lash out, then the Danger Zone is there for anyone - where one may bash Barry, scream against the religion & politics of your choice, or ten thousand other rants (which I partake in on occasion as well). Helps me to go off while standing on my soapbox as the meds screw what my widdle bwain has remaining as the cancer continues to eat me alive.

.... God bless Seek. God bless OrioN. God bless bladerunner. God bless George Bush The Danger Zone.

.
....
That said, am making a motion that this thread be sent to the Danger Zone & a new one troll-free be renewed in its place. Thank you.

.
