what are the results of trashing a thread

I have decided to trash any thread i deem to be refighting the last primary. My criteria are; if the thread has disparaging remarks of either of our candidates it will be trashed.
Does this do anything of consequence?

1. It takes the thread off your screen so it stops irritating you

That has calming therapeutic effects.

4. I use this frequently.

It helps me to clear out redundant threads.

6. I Just Re-Trashed General Discussion

Nothing but food fights about the past.

7. No, it just removes the thread from your screen

If you've been pissed off enough to post in it and somebody replies, you'll see your post and the reply under "my posts."

I've trashed more threads in the last two days than I did in the previous two years. Of course, I had the candidate forums trashed, also.

8. I use it all the time.

It helps to prevent throwing my hands up and leaving as does another feature I use. The problem now is that the refighting, and other behaviors (that if I were to point out would likely cause this post to be flagged) have gotten to the point that I will leave again anyway. The shit is tiresome. Inevitability it always ends up this way.
