Blocking topics

I know how to block individual discussions but I wonder if there is a way of blocking topics?

I have absolutely no interest in News & Politics; TV, Radio & Film; Brexit and several more.

To have all these topics, each with several discussions coming up on an already extensive list, is a pain to sort through.

Does anyone know how I can actually customise so I don't get these topics at all?

Thanks smile

Well I would help you Bradford but I’ve blocked Site Stuff 😀

Why do you need to block them?
Why not just go to the topics you do want to read about?
I just look at the Active List.
I have no interest in the Games Threads so I just scroll down till something interesting appears.
It’s not really a big deal confused

I would suggest you don't use the active page but click on forums at the top of the page and open the ones you do want to see.
That way you avoid News&Politics etc.

I see where you are coming from but I'd worry I'd miss something interesting so I do what Jane says.

Jane Why do you need to block them?

Because I have a vision problem and reading is incredibly difficult.
Scrolling down through dozens of discussion which I don't want, takes ages and ages - in addition, the text is undulating and moving as I try to read. So the less I have to read, the better.

Hi BradfordLass72,

There's no way to block certain topics off active conversations for now. smile

I can not abide the constant use of acronyms or initial letters. DiL for Daughter in law etc. It is the crassest, pathetic way to debate or communicate.
Just chill out.
