Ignore a thread - can you?

Discussion in 'Site Support' started by smokeysmoo, 18 Aug 2012.

  1. I know you can choose to ignore a complete forum, but is there a way to just ignore individual threads?

    Not click on it?
     
  3. D'oh why didn't I think of that? :tongue:

    Seriously though, sometimes a thread occurs, and as I use the 'What's New' button, it will appear. Now I know I don't have to click on it, and TBH I don't, but it would be nice to be able to simply not even see it IMO.

    Well, obviously one can just not click on it but an 'ignore thread' option is something I'd quite like too - just to remove the thread from view. I've asked before and it wasn't possible.

    I did actually! :blush: And I remember microfeish - hi-tec days, those, late 70s, when I was a young office clerk.
    And I thought there was only the one type of Tippex. Nurse!

    SnowPex was an early one IIRC. My screen's covered with it and still the beggars get through!

    That's right yello. Pick on an old fella who's memory is fading. Next you'll be telling me they made an electronic version of the stuff and I don't need the 40 or so boxes of the stuff still left from the gross I bought in 1966.

    :laugh:

    It's me that's the old fella with the fading memory! Without google, I would not have been sure!

    But do you remember Tippex papers? For typists to 'white out' a single letter. Actually, wasn't 'white out' a similar product? I'm off to google again.....

    It's the US equivalent I believe. I'd be lost without google! :laugh:

    Sorry my memory isn't what it once might have been if I could remember.

    During the seventh decade of the last century, secretaries were known to cover their boobs with Tippex.

    Are you sure that was Tippex?

    And does the phrase 'pearl necklace' mean anything to you?
