glib, but not helpful.

a) there is no option to hide "for sale" threads before I even have to waste time looking at them (yes, if I could hide the entire "For Sale" forum off the front page, I would)

b) the hide topic button doesn't even appear on the OP in a thread - it only appears once a thread has at least 2 posts. So each thread annoys us at least twice.

c) repeat offenders just keep annoying us with new threads - each of which will anoy me at least twice.

d) I have so many Hidden Topics (must be thousands) that the chockstone database times out trying to show me the list - so I can't even manage it.

I.e. don't be calling "hide topic" the perfect solution. (with the usual disclaimer - Mike's done a great job to give us the functions available)

IMO time-rich users who want to see this stuff would NOT be disadvantaged if it was weeded out of Chockstone - it takes no time to find other sites for this, there are heaps of them. However, time-poor users most certainly ARE disadvantaged by having to continually hoe through this garbage to find good Aus climbing content - which does not exist anywhere else on the web.

[edit: tas_alex, not specifically having a go at you, you are at least selling climbing gear which is more than can be said for some others]
