How can I filter out the giant catholic posts?

Can someone please help me figure out how I can block/filter out the catholic posts that have the huge long picture files?

When I browse latest posts or latest articles, there are some of these posts that contain huge long pictures etc that disrupt the flow of scanning titles for interesting reads.

I have nothing against Catholics, just spam.

Thanks

29 posts (bumps) in less than 2 hours, including Latin. Wow what an effective way to evangelize.

This doesn’t mean your one thought is a thread by itself.

You’ve been using FR all these years and you haven’t figured out how set your preferences?

many of them are good conservatives otherwise.

That's mighty white of you.

Tiki I know how to set them. But my question is whether or not I can put the poster on ignore or only filter out those threads. I shouldn’t have to set Preferences blocking out 99.9% Of the content that isn’t abusive spam

I was instructed by another poster to click on 'News and Activism' under 'Browse by Forum'...it DOES purge that Catholic stuff right out the door. Try it.

Perhaps the people posting that don't realize that many Freepers have very limited time available to them in the morning before they head out for the day, and that those posts make it very difficult to find the important news items we seek.

Why can’t they use LINKS?

Exactly. There are many instances where posters have been instructed to use links...they should be used here...

Sometimes a post in FR is nothing but a long list of links, somtimes upwards of 100 links in a single post.

I thought I was the only one annoyed when on by phone annoyed at this.

I had 8yrs of Latin and 1yr of Classical Greek in HS & College, so at least I could read ‘em before they got ZOTTED. LOL.

If you only want news, click the News/Activism forum in the right hand toolbar. It filters out all other forums.

I don’t really care all that much. It doesn’t seem to be that big of a problem and I read FR every day.

I am amazed at the mentality behind the mega-posts, however, even if it’s a poster I agree with.

And I do realize that in some cases the posts are for historical sake, so that all the links regarding Romney’s liberal history (just to take one example) are preserved in a single place.

But often such posts are repetitive and in the middle of a lively conversation and are so bizarre (does the poster really think we’re going to stop right now, in the middle of this discussion and follow each and every one of those links) as to be virtually off-topic.

Maybe there should be a place on FR to archive lists of links on specific topics, and then you can just link to the appropriate archive when you need to. Just a thought.

But again, I’m not complaining, I’m just expressing amazement at the implied idea that anyone is expected to read all that stuff.

I haven’t seen any of these that you describe. When I sign in, I see the title and short excerpts of the posts. I have to click on the post to see the entire thing.

I do not get any pictures on the latest article page, while i do not see long pictures in a thread, but that comes with part of being able to dialog, and which can get into much depth.

I myself am interested in the religion threads, but i find the often promoting of Catholicism (though most of her members are liberal), far more than her “competition,” to be provoking. And which often results in the promoters complaining when challenged
