We now can limit the feed, through the feed filter, to one thing--Hubs, etc. But there is no way, from what I can tell, to just exclude one thing from the feed--specifically, forum threads, which was what I was trying to exclude. I went to My Account and unfollowed forums that I had been following. However, the forum threads are still showing up in my feed. I don't know if it just needs time to set in or what. I realize at this point the main way to avoid getting the forums in the feed is not to comment in the forum, which is my future plan. But I was thinking it would be a good feature if we could just exclude them from the feed through the feed filter or something along those lines. Or maybe something in My Account in the Following section in which you can just click a check box and exclude forum threads from the feed and notifications.
As you mentioned, we show authors content that we think they will find of interest. So if you participate in the forums, we assume that you are interested in the content in them and show it to you via the feed.
You can change your options related to the feed and forums here.
Keep in mind that we are also likely to show you content from authors you are following as well.
I never see anything relating to forums on my feed. Therefore I apparently figured out how to do that sometime in the past. Unfortunately, I don't remember what it was I did. Am I helpful or what?
Hark! I found it. After clicking Feed Filters, click the Filter-by-Type edit. Forum-posts options will show up. Un-check the critters.
I unclicked them. I'm still getting forum threads in my feed but I think that will change. At least I'm hoping so. When I did the unclicks and hit save I got a message that said the changes would be effective going forward. Thank you for your assistance.

Whenever I open the forums, I see countless threads by the same people, many of them unanswered or with only a couple of comments. I would love to see a limit on how many threads the same person can open daily. I often have to go to page 2 or 3 to see what else people are...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all for having a community forum, but I believe it should be a community forum for...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess). Naturally, this means I am, again, into the biggest time-killer space for me on...

It is hard to see that Bubblews threads have a place in the Hubpages section of the forums.Could another place be found for them?
