    Political propaganda.

    Can we maybe take a vote to decide if we should eliminate all the extreme political propaganda on this site? Arenít there enough political and other related media and bullshit sites out there? Why should we poison this site with this toxicity? Iím here to help, to contribute, occasionally to ask or seek help. Not here to have to be exposed to a bunch of political BS, like nearly every other forum/site out there.

    Sheesh, at least make it so I can block that crap from popping up in my feed and block the users that keep trying to force all their extreme, ridiculous, ignorantly back-woods, nauseating, left, liberal propaganda from my view.

    Even though Iíve used the ďhideĒ option for these types of posts, they continue to show up on my home feed.

    Is there currently a way I can block these types of posts and/or certain users?

    Thanks, rant complete.

    Re: Political propaganda.

    Are you talking about people posting here or Ads / spam? I don't get any political ads on sidebars etc. A lot of other ads with Russian girls etc but nothing political, unless I missed it. I kind of block the ads out.

    I agree and posted here a few times that "I'm not going to fight about politics on a copier forum "
    This is no place for politics but they are posting under the right catagory so nothing you can do about it except pass right over the thread like I do. You have the option of not opening a thread with a political title posted under the rants, everything else catagory. Free speech

    Don't get me wrong I love to go at it with the Socialist Dems but not on a copier forum. When Trump wins again the "few" Dems on this forum will crawl back under their rock and this forum will go back to normal.

    Re: Political propaganda.

    Just for your information, the name of the Forum where you started this thread is Rants, Raves and Everything Else. This is where you can rant about politics, rave about politics and post everything else that floats your boat.

    Anytime you comment on a thread you are automatically subscribed to that thread. You will then get an email the next time someone comments to that same thread. When you open that email you will see three links. The first will take you to the new comment in the thread. The second will unsubscribe you from that thread. The third will unsubscribe you from all threads you are currently subscribed to.

    As far as users that you find annoying, while viewing the thread click on the users name and select to view profile. On the left hand column of the profile you will see an option to Add to Ignore List.

    I believe that there is at least one Canadian and one Floridian who will continue to bitch until they are on their death beds.
