Correct. If you are banned from a sub-forum non of that stuff appears in the "New Posts" or "Today's Posts" lists. Those threads are filtered from the lists because of the ban status. Works great for me.

Exactly. That single sub-forum has MILLIONS of posts!! The m3post.com board has now become a Poli-Sci Reddit Forum. Instead of posting on zerohedge.com there is a small village community that come here.

Those same poli-sci posts pollute all of the bimmerforum boards. Check the M4 board or the M5 board the same poli-sci posts even appear there too.

I was a contributing member before the ban. But then the web-bots and the trolls took over.

Here's another idea. How about someone who still has access to the Poli-Sci sub-forum start posting all kinds of car related stuff on that forum, and while you're at it how about cross-threading some of their threads with this thread. A kind of reverse pollution so to speak. I think they should love the diversity of thought that car forum threads can provide. Or perhaps point them to a real Poli-Sci board such as www.zerohedge.com or 4Chan, 8Chan or Reddit.

One could be even more brazen and audacious for example by simply posting things like:

1) Advice And Recommendations For Rod Bearing Shops near CIA head quarters in Langley Virginia
2) What Kind of Car(s) does your average TSA agent prefer or lust after?
3) Have You Ever Voted in Foreign Countries With Your SCCA or BMWCCA card?
4) Did Weiner really have car porn on his laptop?
5) Does Huma drive in a dress, pants, a kimono or a hijab?

The mind boggles. The thing to do is to distract them with car subjects that seem political, -> or perhaps just post real car stuff topics on that sub-forum

+1 on the big friendly blue button. I prefer the sound of my v8 any day to the cafeteria philosophy bs cesspool where the prevailing mentality seems to be "as long as I talk more than you, I'm right and you're wrong".

I know there's that big blue button, but I wish we could just implement a way to make the political section only go away. I don't mind the other off topic stuff.

its clear that the politics forum is a turn off for many members. needs to be an easy way to just get rid of politics without getting rid of other less polarizing off topic posts.

No one makes any member go to any forum. If it is a turnoff don't read it. The Health Section may be a turn off to some or the Watches forum may make some uncomfortable. If members don't like a topic, don't read it. The world will never be filtered based on peoples turn offs.

True, but it just makes filtering through the results of the "new posts" button pretty tiring. I get it - I set mine up to avoid it as well. I just venture in when I'm pretty bored.

I linked it already, but highly recommend people check it out - Post 2 in this thread did it for me, love it. I cut out the watches and some others as well https://www.1addicts.com/forums/show....php?t=1489024 It's a 1-time setup that takes a few minutes but is worth it until there are other options, if ever.

I view by new posts daily and a full page worth would be politics. Not just mundane politics, very flamboyant and one-sided politics. In this day and age, it's not an unreasonable request to have one tiny refuge from the political vitriol, and I don't see a problem with giving the user the option to filter them out of they so choose.

Yes it will and it already is. Twitter/Facebook/etc all give me options to block people, pages, and filter words. I'm not asking that your view be filtered. I'm asking to be given the option to better filter mine.
