I think it's a decent idea. Makes the page a little less cluttered. The only downside is that every once in a great while there might actually be a story I'll click on.

Not to say too, too much, but 4 years ago some said the same from the other side of the fence

But in all seriousness, about the only place I could see this comming up is the new posts section. And yeah I'm aware some forums do have an opt in discussion group for P&R, so it is doable. By a like token (and perhaps outside that list, has anyone been bothered?), I do think a little self control can also come in handy. AKA if one knows they're going to be bothered, exercising choice on whether to click or not click. By a like token, some have chosen to not click on the babe thread or whatever other provided links might be of question while at work.

On that token, I did find it funny how my maternal grandmother used to watch shows on cable that fell in the more riske side then was common when she was growing up (she was born in 1902), and she'd sit there saying "see that? Terrible, how can they show this", as she'd sit there commenting about and mentioning all the stuff being shown.

So my father once asked "so why are you watching it?" She looked at him completely shocked he'd have thought of such a question. Both my parents concluded she secretly enjoyed the showing of skin on cable, but growing up in the Victorian era, she couldn't quite come out and admit that

You could always develop a browser script that scans the posts, and does some selective word replacement. Didn't someone do that with Gib a few years back, so that replies to Gib would include the words "baby seal", Klondike bar, eskamo pie, and igloo?

I agree. If people don't want to go in there they already aren't so why add something to do something they are already doing?

Did that make sense?

Can it be configured to ban kevpla if he clicks the opt-in?

I'm good either way with it, but I also second the idea of an opt-in for the testing forum. If anything here should be hidden (or deleted) that's the one.

Naa...I kinda enjoy banning him and deleting his threads. It gives me a sense of self-worth to know that I'm keeping the level of retardation down to a noticeable low.
