The Googly Eyes geeklist just seems to clutter up the list of geeklists under a game, and almost every game I look at is on it. Is there some way to ignore it? I tried to block it, but that didn't work.

There are other lists I have this issue with too.

No, I don't think there is - sorry.

Does one line of the ten available really make that much clutter? I'm not trying to be snarky, just honestly curious.

I guess it just seems like when you look at bigger games they are all on the same lists: logical inconsistencies, googly eyes, games that fired other games, etc. I'd just like to hide all those.

It's not a very big deal if you can't do it.

I'll admit that the googly eyes one just annoys me though...

What I infer is that you'd like the presentation restricted to useful GeekLists.

What I observe is a great deal of effort in making GeekLists that are pointedly otherwise.

There are definitely some useful geeklists out there. I love the Free Solo PNP geeklist, for example.

Also maybe it's partially my fault, because I've never created or contributed to a geeklist.

Some people use the geek as a database.
Some people use the geek as a social network.
This creates problems as each group has different priorities and they can contradict.
What you see as geeklists that aren't useful, other people see as geeklists that are fun and enjoyable.

Speaking of less-than-useful-but-otherwise-fulfilling socializing:

That is a damn fine avatar you have there, frumpish.
