Default Possible to ignore sections of the forum?

Is it possible to ignore sections of the forum? Specifically meaning that you don't have to see the political topics listed in the 'New Posts' view? I'm really interested in the motorcycle content here, but there seems to be less of that than extreme political junk. I go to political sites for politics ... kinda just want motorcycle stuff when I come to motorcycle.com.

Is this possible, or am I just misinterpreting the purpose of the place?

You could not click on them.

It's pretty easy.

I'm not interested in "carb clogged on Honda Shadow" posts, but I don't get my panties in a wad over it.

Yeah, I already don't click on them. Thanks for not answering my question.

It'd just be awesome to not have to ignore half the links on a page, that's all.

Never mind.

I've been asking for something like that for a long while on here.
The owners are not sympathetic.
Sad I think.

I personally see it as just a minor inconvenience but there have been times when I almost decided to stop visiting.

I suspect that it will get to me one of these days and I will leave.

Yeah, I'm not trying to be a smart alec but when you click on the "new Post" section on the very far right it shows which catagory the post is. If it's in Politics and Religion section then you know it's either going to be some Libertarian crap or some Libral hogwash. Just don't click on it.

That's what I've been doing.. just wondered if there was a way to block the section entirely.

FTR, though, I'd be interested in blocking the right-wing crap and Tea Bagger hogwash.

The Politics and Religion sections does require a particpant possess at the very least the ability to use Logic and Reason or run the risk of being outed as innately unintelligent. Salva Veritate Molon Labe.

This is somewhat beyond the limitations of the forum software and, specifically, the "New Posts" view.

The only way for us to set it so you don't see topics from certain sections would be, in essence, to ban you from those sections. This is a rather heavy-handed way to go about this, and our policy is to leave it to the individual user to opt not to read those threads rather than outright restrict the user from seeing them.
