Tim, can you look into limiting the increasingly NSFW/bizarre banner ads on the site? How's a guy supposed to procrastinate in peace?

Anyone else experiencing this, or am I just watching too much porn

I'm not getting them.

And as mentioned upthread, it's really hard for me to control the ads that google serves.

I just realized that I'm not seein any ads on this site because I run an ad blocker, and how not cool that is around here. Sorry Tim, I've turned it off now.

Reminder to anyone running an ad blocker - keep it on for major sites, but not for places like this.

Any way for a user to block a thread from showing up on the "Active Topics" list? So if I don't want to see the "Dogs are awesome. Yay Dogs!" thread, for example, I could block it and not show up when I click on Active Topics.

On a side note, I probably didn't need to clarify the first statement.

What kind of horsefeathering monster does not want to see a thread celebrating dogs? Better idea, give me the ability to perma-ban just 1 user...

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Can you work on making this a message board for a different team?

Who would you want to root for, though? They all suck. Maybe Tampa for their creativity?

Just an example. I find that thread mostly comical. Several others I would prefer not to see, but occasionally get tempted to click on. And then I’m disappointed I clicked on it.

Tim - I’m actually serious in my request, but don’t know that it’s possible and/or worth your time.

This reminded me of one of my favorite exchanges from Bojack

"Ignore! How do I ignore?!"
"I think with a beeper, you just...ignore it"
"With what, my mind?!"

I am genuinely confused.
