This is ground that’s been covered, but since it was stated that the current situation was temporary, and nothing seems to be changing, I thought I’d bring it up again for comments.
I personally don’t like the way things are now with the titles of off-topic posts being hidden.
When I go to the main forum page, I see a bunch of posts that just say “off-topic content”, and I have no idea whether I want to click on them or not. I’m not always in the mood to read a political post, but at least if the title is showing, I know not to click on it. The way it stands now, the only options are to click on every off-topic post to decide whether or not you want to continue to read it, or ignore all off-topic posts and run the risk of missing something really good that has nothing to do with politics or religion.
I say this tongue-in-cheek, but maybe we need another forum called “For Liberals, Conservatives, Religious Zealots, and Militant Atheists Only”. Then, all religious and political content could be posted there, and Martin would only have to hide the titles in that forum.
Perhaps in place of the actual titles, the message could read ”Inflammatory Content. Click to Raise Your Blood Pressure”.
