    This morning I noticed that Forum Spy will display the list of new posts, except the forums I've excluded, but after a few seconds, it switches and displays posts from all forums, even though the selection to exclude forums is still checked. Is this a known issue? Anyone else experiencing this?

    So far I'm not noticing any issues with the spy, its retaining all my settings, i.e., I'm only seeing what I want to see.

    Here's what I'm seeing:

    Normal view:

    4 seconds later, without touching anything:
    Scap  2014-06-25 at 8.06.45 AM.png

    Sometimes it will switch back to the normal view after several seconds. This is after resetting Safari, restarting the Mac, and with all extensions turned off. I also randomly get beachballs when viewing Forum Spy, or if I'm replying to a thread. The beachball only appears on MR forums tabs, and not on other Safari tabs, so it's not the app that's locking up.

    I'm not saying its not occurring but rather it must be a localized issue as I'm not seeing what you're reporting.

    Could be an issue with Javascript on your machine. Have you restarted the browser to try and clear it? FWIW, I've not noticed it on any of my computers, but will keep an eye out for it.

    I have seen that too, yesterday suddenly several fora I excluded appeared, but I blamed my own stupifidity.
    It hasn't happened today yet.

    Yes, I reset Safari several times and restarted the Mac, turned off extensions, etc.
    I haven't seen it happen today, either. Must have been a 24-hour bug. :D

    The problem with Forum Spy ignoring my excluded forums selection has returned.
