New Posts filter?
There've been quite a few threads recently buried because of general chitchat, and equally some irritation being voiced. Since most people use the New Posts feature rather than going to the particular forum I wondered if it'd be possible to set up a filter system.
If the details of a person's custom filter could be stored with their login it might avoid a lot of the anger, since people could only display new posts from the technical forums, or even just the technical forums they are interested in/willing to contribute to.
Just a thought.

The difficulty I see with this is, the General Chat forum gets used for technical topics that don't fit elsewhere.
Ideally, in order to do this sort of thing, there would need to be an 'anything else technical' forum so as to split the general stuff out.

Inferred from user comments. I should probably have said 'many' rather than 'most'.
