I think such a feature can be enabled on vBulletin sites. Any chance we could enable it here?

vBulletin does not have this feature built-in. However, it is available as a modification.

If someone wants to post on a forum that only has thread topics they are interested in or agree with, then perhaps they should go start their own forum and just post with their own self.

I think part of the fun is mingling with the 'other world'.

You can address this issue from your end. If you use the "Super Ignore" script and the Grease Monkey plugin for the Firefox browser, you can avoid ever seeing threads or posts by people on your ignore list. Threads by ignored users just won't appear on the page.

If there are only a few threads you're interested in, there's a simpler way to achieve what you need: set your thread subscription mode to automatic and only come visit the My Settings page where they are listed.

Thanks for the responses so far, but my rationale for wanting this capability is that some threads by title alone tell me it's not worth my time (Is so-and-so merely a terrible politician or the most terrible politician?) That sort of thing.

Isn't that good enough? Your very own "ignore this thread" flag.
