Can we have threads from this forum *NOT* appear in Trending or Greatest on the homepage?

Especially needed when those headlines and threads are pure ragebait targeting this candidate or that? People looking to participate in the mud fights know where to find the Democratic Primaries (Forum), hell just provide a link on the homepage and a disclaimer, and everyone else would probably like some peace and quiet for once without getting inadvertently sucked in.

Obviously the poll is tongue-in-cheek, but the request is sincere.

1. Go to the main page of the Democratic Primaries forum. It is here:

 

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1287

Then click the little button with a trash can on it that says "Trash this forum".

Follow the instructions. Problem solved.

2. But that just skirts the issue & most people won't read your post here or ever see that instruction.

 

Having a simple direct link with disclaimer on the homepage helps let people know where to look and what they may be about to get themselves into. In the disclaimer you could even mention the Trash this Forum option. It's about further helping keep the often hostile debate contained as much as possible to the appropriate forum without needlessly drawing people in to it. 2004, 2008 and 2016 have shown we've a lot more work to do to keep the peace. More tools are better.
