    This was possible, using a hack, up to Version 3.8. In later versions, that hack no longer works

    We have Version 4.2.3

    Some time ago Robbie was considering switching the forum over to Xenforo. AFAIK, that cannot even be hacked to achieve the function you want.

    Not "sick" of it... it just has reached a stage (somewhile ago) where its no longer about rugby . Its now just semantics and has long passed the point of moving the debate offline.

    whatever.

    you could always ask an admin to close it.

    Personally, I find it somewhat cathartic. I get the opportunity to explore my unconscious biases in a safe space. YMMV, of course.

    mods should curate threads away, it's what they are for.
    It's like the way we ref, spotting potential trouble and extinguishing it before it's a problem

    Id imagine the admins can work stuff like that out for themselves. It just keeps popping up when there is an update - Id rather just be able to set it so it never appears to me but everybody else can carry on, given it cant clearly be taken offline between various protagonsits.

    no biggy. i just wondered if there was an automagic method to ignore the thrtead completely.

    ill just continue to manually filter it

    We have always modded with a light touch, and only close threads in rare circumstances. The Chiefs thread is not yet one of those circumstances.

    There is a super low tech solution here, it's called the scroll on by method, if you see something you don't like, or that is no longer interesting to you, you just keep scrolling on by.

    I was expecting a sarcasm emoji with your opportunity sentence
