Skip to comments.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.
Learn something new every day. Thanks again. Much better.
Well, I have no problem with people posting things that are important to them, if its the appropriate forum, etc., but my problem is when they intentionally make it a huge graphics file so that I am forced to look at it. It seems abusive to me, given that I can’t figure out a way to filter them out
I don’t have an Ipad or an Iphone, but when I click on something that I don’t like I merely go to the right hand corner and click the X.
You’re welcome. Like John W, I can’t imagine browsing FR any other way!
Wait...that won't work.
The choice is yours.
That is why I don’t use a table for Freeping.
I think your title could have been better phrased to read, “How can I filter out giant picture-spam posts on some of the religious threads?” Just saying...
True. Good point. I guess I’ve never seen anyone else intentionally spamming and end-running the forum features in order to force people to look at their posts, so I didn’t think to make it generic (so as not to offend).
You mean like blocking any article regarding the Washington Post? I'm sorry but I don't know any way.
(snicker) I meant tablet not table.
If you find out, please copy me so I can filter out any posts with 'stupid' in them. Usually it is just a not well thought out opinion.
Just trying to be helpful. BTW, I’m a “recovering Methodist”, but the thread title phrasing did irk me a tad.
Agree 100%. These posts take up two thirds of the main page. Half the post is in Latin.
—seriously. Its one post taking over the board.
frankly I think the Catholics ought to just post a link to where the faithful can click if they want to read for an hour.
LOL - I betchya if they were giant obnoxious Mormon posts written in Latin, they would get deleted instantly.
Just did 15 swipes to get through the latest one of those. If you are prone to motion sickness, those posts can require a trip to the toe-let or a need for a bucket close by. Maybe some Dramamine.
Oh, so you don’t enjoy the Attack Of The Fifty Foot Burgundy Boxes, lol?
I’ve often wondered which diocese approved this FR ministry, since the RCC does not look upon private ministry kindly at all.
I agree. Why can’t they use LINKS?
Gotta be longer than fifty! They just keep coming . . .
My suggestion would be to freepmail the posters themselves and ask them nicely please not to do that. Include a link to this thread.
Point out that nobody — nobody — not even people in agreement with them, is going to read all of that stuff.
I would also cc some of the most long-winded of the posters on the anti-Mormon threads. Not that their datadumps take up quite as much screen-realestate as some of the Catholic threads but they do share the same tedious non-readability aspects.
