Can I make them go away??

Sometimes I see threads I have NO interest in, and they are always hot topic and at the top of new posts, but driving me nuts.
Is there something to click for "mark as read for ever n ever"?

I also wondered whether it was the children.

I just ignore them - have a quick look over the titles, investigate the ones I think are interesting, then hit mark all threads as read.

to be honest, I have no interest in MOST threads posted on this forum

I click on very few threads, but have no problem scanning the titles to find the few that interest me.

LOL bucky.

I have a history of asking for pictures of children/grandchildren, I even have posted pics of a great neice and nephew. I am here for the food, not others lives drama. I simply can not open any thread with a title of, we had to put down our dog, or my cat just died. I can't go there, nope. And any thread dealing with TV (), tv personalities, chef personalities, tv programs, actors, I just don't know who/what is being discussed. The only game I am interested in is the photo guessing one, but that one takes a lot of energy and time.

Nope, mostly here for the food discussions

fair enough.

but having realized the love and fellowship here when i recently posted about the loss of MY beloved cat, i can surely tell you that you're missing out on what could be called the heart of the site.


you can take what you want, and give as you wish, certainly. i find i'm a richer person from what i share.

(i have no idea where that all just came from. that nicely, i mean... especially after the t.v. crapola)

ROFLLLL, bilby.

hardly any sleep for weeks is starting to make me kooky.

and thanks expatty. i still think i see her, in shadows, when i open doors, or the tv flickers late at night. she was a dark calico that was as fast as lightning.

i miss her drooling head butts, and lyrical purrs when she was happy.

oh Bucky! I do the same thing.

It's wonderful how we all love our pets.

I used to read most of the new posts, but since it has gotten so large, I scan thru what I want and then mark everything "read". I don't have time to read 11 pages of anything most days.

I still feel Greizie get up on the bed at night! And I have to stop myself from calling out to Souska and Tiki. And like you, I still think I catch a glace of Snowy, Blackie and Tizzie! (Tizzie went missing over twenty years ago!!)

But then, I still feel the same about some people that died. I think I see them in the streets... and however much I loved them, I really DON'T want to be seeing their ghosts walking down the Mall!!
