Not interested tied with the screening system to the front forums sounds WAY more complicated than useful.
You need to work on the ninja art of having your eyes slide over the boring...

Hey, I'm used to self-filtering the front page -- but I think it'd be useful to be able to click something that would keep threads for, say, Age of Steam expansions from showing on the front page. I don't if the code would get too clunky, but functionally I don't see how it's complicated at all.
