    We turned on a new "Ignore Forums" feature.

    http://forums.macrumors.com/account/ignored-forums

    You can check off forums you would like to ignore. These posts won't appear in "New Posts" or "Spy", but will still show up in Search.

    Give it a test, and see how it goes.

    Excellent! It's very welcomed and slightly easier to use than it was on VB.

    There's also a "Ignore Forum" / "Unignore Forum" toggle at the top of each forum view.

    Thanks!
    I've been using the Spy mod and ignoring the PRSI already, but this is a welcome addition

    +1 :)

    Thanks for this arn. Much nicer implementation that the old VB method of having to enter all the forum numbers manually in prefs.

    What's wrong with PRSI? It's a great place to argue with people!

    That's what makes it awesome!

    But then again, maybe I'm just one of those annoyingly naturally combative people.

    Or, in my case, just substitute my own mod for blocking forums :D

    @arn, any chance of this working with "Latest Replies" on the main page?

    What a very interesting idea and one that has considerable potential.

    We had this feature on the old forum software and it took a while to get it going on the new software.

    I never knew that.

    For now, I simply ignore - manually - by skimming past them visually - the vast majority of the sections of the forum I have little interest in.

    While the temptations to 'ignore' PRSI are considerable, oddly enough, for all of its occasional neolithic intensity, I still like to drop in every now and then; strangely enough, I find it quite instructive and very educational.

    Hehehe, like hundreds of AW threads full of "when you ordered... when you received... what band colour... show off.. best watch ever... band collection... showering with the AW etc."?

    I hear you.

    Yes, I share your sentiments on this.

    I almost never go there so I never heard of any bickering there.
