    Hi @Simon Hampel and anyone who can help.

    How can I hide a thread or ignore a thread so that when I click on "recent posts" and "new posts", that particular thread doesn't show on my screen?

    Thank you for your help.

    Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to "ignore" a thread.

    It's difficult. Haha.... the thread that has more than 900 posts keep staying at the top of the screen...the part of me also wanting to know if the discussion has become more intelligent.

    That one's easy to ignore . Nothing constructive is likely to eventuate . As I said somewhere around post 300 , I admired their persistence , I think . I'm not going to check exactly what I said

    In reality that post serves a very useful purpose . It keeps any troll in the same place so they don't come over and stuff up other posts , so as long as it keeps expanding the rest of the forum is relatively troll free .

    might be possible to use a manual add-on/extension rule to hide <li> elements containing keyword 'ponzi' ;)

    Feel free to add a suggestion for a new feature "ignore threads" ... there may be a plugin available which does this already (or I may one day find the time to write one myself).

    Please add a new feature "ignore threads" or "hide threads". Am I doing it right or do i have to PM you @Simon Hampel or do I have to go look for a plugin?

    Off topic.
    I am reminded of Zhi Shang Tan Bring (Discussing Stratagems on paper)
    "In the Warring States Period, the State of Zhao had a famous general called Zhao She, whose son, Zhao Kuo, was very fond of reading books on military science and discussing strategy. He could recite military texts by heart, and when discussing warfare he spoke so clearly and logically that it seemed that even his father was not his match. When the State of Qin attacked the State of Zhao, the ruler of Zhao ordered Zhao Kuo to lead 400,000 men to resist the attack. But since Zhao Kuo had no practical experience of battle, he was defeated and lost his life.

    Later people used this idiom to describe those who are good only at theorizing, and lack practical experience." http://www.cultural-china.com/chinaWH/html/en/38History1195.html

    I'm glad to be part of a forum where experiences weigh more than strategies on paper. Keep doing what you are doing.

    I think the most generous thing that people do on this forum is share their mistakes or occasions where things have gone wrong. They could be selfish, keep those experiences to themselves and just take from the forum, or share the bad experiences so that others can learn from them. I love learning from other people's mistakes. It's too expensive to make all the mistakes yourself.

    I'm not actually sure that would work - would have to test it.

    A bit of an extreme approach to hiding a single thread though :p
