    Ignoring threads

    Postby Baliset » 18 Sep 2009 04:58

    I'd like to ask if this forum supports the option to ignore some threads or subcategories, so that they don't appear in "View new posts".

    For example I am not interested in world politics and I see daily many such posts in the subforum intended for these discussions. :oops:

    Please don't get me wrong. I don't intend to insult the forum topics or those who are interested in politics. It's just that not everybody shares the same interests and would require some individual convenience :D

    Maybe if you were actually an active member here you'd know this has been discussed before. :roll:

    So? Just means the onus is on YOU to catch up.

    You could also try the bloody search function. :roll:

    Either way, Dumb Novels is back up, so you can run back and preeq-wank yourself silly over there again.

    I end up reading every thread regardless of whether or not the topic interests me because I'm compulsive about the orange "new post" icons.

    I go thorough phases. Sometimes I can't get enough of this place and read everything new. Sometimes I could care less, but I can't stop visiting so I'll look down the list of new posts and say " ah, fuck this; off to T(A)U." :lol:

    I've complained about this before, but I have to read all the new posts,
    because you Off-Topic ADHD motherfuckers might derail some boring
    Dune Discussion with some of the good entertainment ... and also,
    the cross-thread postings ...

    but seriously, what precautions are we taking against the Charwood Zombie ?

    how to fully interact with people.

    Everything but "Politics" for me. I don't even look inside there any longer.

    And, rarely, I'll just skip a thread that has gotten insanely boring. It really is fairly rare, though, because most of the conversation around here is pretty good.

    The Return of Harwood would be glorious. As a skilled dramatist, he must know that he should return and add a few chapters to this epic tale. He can't let the story end on the cliffhanger bequeefing of the blog. We must have The Revenge of Frank Walden.

    I know the first three (maybe four, by now) books, and am in the process of learning about Heretics and Chapterhouse, and I try to read everything. And you never know when an Onasander is going to pop up.

    I searched Twitter a bit yesterday for accounts having to do with Norman, Oklahoma. ;)

    I know he's out there, somewhere.

    I can feel him. :D

    Huh? What are those? I'm not familiar with that concept.

    I mean, I read the words and understand what they mean, but I have no personal experiential referents. Ugly ... girlfriend? Get OUT of here! :hand:

    I recently "friended" my most recent ex-girlfriend on FB. Amazingly she's still hot.
