Can we get a "HIDE THREAD" Button for the love of gods?

    There is so much insanity and stupidity in the iPad and iPhone forums right now, we desperately need a "hide thread" button so I don't have to constantly see 5 year olds whining about this and that.

    The best you're going to get is to hide forums from the forum spy listing.

    I totally agree. Either that or bring back the down vote button.

    But if we have the ability to block users, doesn't it make sense to have the ability to block threads?

    Sure. But the forum doesn't have that functionality.

    It should, hence the point of this thread.

    You have to work with the tools you are given:

    I'm not clear on why Threads have to disappear. Nobody is forced to read them, or participate in them. I can't see where just seeing the Titles creates such an intense reaction.

    While I fully agree that many threads, throughout the Forum, are of questionable value at best, and silly nonsense at worst...just reading the Title and ignoring them seems a reasonable strategy.

    While I enjoy participating in many of the threads, including some of the really silly ones (my perverse sense of enjoyment), I can also just ignore the Threads that pop up on Forum Spy with titles which are obviously of no interest...for whatever reason.

    As SandboxGeneral points out, if there are particular sub-forums are of no interest (for me, sub-fora such as the coding and programming type threads are of no interest as they are totally over my head), they can just be put on you sub-forum Ignore List.
