Can MR admins revisit "ignoring" or "omitting" forums from search?

    This is why PRSI -- or any forum for that matter -- needs to be ignorable. I know it was a request in the "wiki" but I'm sure its simply been forgotten about. I work in construction; I've got a thick skin. But is a tech forum really the place to discuss the virtues of rape? I don't wanna see this **** in search results, and I do not believe I am alone.

    This isn't about suppression of someone else's discussion. It's more about returning meaningful and relevant search results.

    We can see about removing those items from search results for ignored forums.

    I'll just throw in that I'd like to be able to view all posts, in a particular set of subforums, since my last visit. Is this already possible?

    You can go here and checkmark the forums you want to ignore when you click "New Posts", thereby creating your subset of forums you want to follow by leaving them unchecked.

    Thanks for that!

    A little explanation on that page might be a good thing for the future.
