    Junk Filter

    Can we have a "Junk Filter" added to the Lounge?
    This way we (the user) could filter out different posts by key words in the subject and/or body text, certain user names and etc. Some post are a total waste of time to be displayed.

    What was it Tom Hanks said in that film I never saw... "Life is but a box of chocolates"...?
    I'm afraid you're always going to come across some things you don't like or enjoy, but the way I see it is that it's the nuts you don't like that make the soft centres all the nicer.

    Re: Junk Filter

    What might seem to be junk to one person, is valuable or perhaps funny to another.

    "You can never be all things to all people". So to try to filter out one post may be just the thing that another is looking for.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I think he meant a personal setting junk filter. It will filter just want YOU want it to filter.

    Re: Junk Filter

    Mike has it correct. I want to be able to filter out some of the different post made by certain users as an example. To protect the guilty I will not post any example user names.
