I would like to filter out certain topics from my view - my Grandmother recommended no religion and no politics. Could we add a feature to hide certain subjects when we read the forum posts?
You can check out Edweirdo's forum filter. He introduced it a while ago. And it does exactly what you're talking about. You have to use Firefox 4 or Chrome as a browser. There's a check box next to each forum category and you check those you want to block.
You can click on the blocked forum category link if you choose to take a look, but it will still remain blocked as long as it is checked.
You can also block specific threads from view from categories that you do not have blocked.
It is a timesaver and I no longer have to see the ridiculous thread titles from certain forums. I can't see Religion, Politics, and a couple others that I have no interest in.

really? I was sure Edweirdo said it would no longer work once FF4 was available. As long as it works! Do you have the updated version?
EDIT: I read his page again. It says the version you have now would not work on FF4 if you updated your FF browser.
