Option to ignore threads

This has likely been asked before, but I would like to add to it that I really think the option to ignore threads would be a great idea. Especially with those game titles that you can't stand reading that always seem to stay on the top. For me, it's the games that have the creator's name in the title and the creator's name is always something strange. Eg Reiner Knizia (what the hell kind of name is that?)

Anyways, I'd love to be able to ignore annoying threads.

Completely unsurprising that this thread received the comments it did considering the majority of it's user-base. Many forums I belong to have an ignore option for threads that a member may never read that, in turn, push threads they might read into other pages. It seems like a completely viable feature and I'm sure many of the members would use it.

But that option already exists. It's called... averting your eyes.

Yeah I kinda thought this option was already available too, it's called "just ignore it then". Perhaps we could ask local newstands to burn all the newspapers we don't buy because it's annoying seeing them there, with all their funny names.
