I think this is a great idea! I may even start reading and posting again.

Mechanisms were already in place to deal with this so I feel the idea of segregating certain threads to a place that is invisible unless you opt in just because a thread strays into a certain topic is overreacting. Yeesh!
You know, I think from the comments on this thread that there are enough people sick and tired of having to comb through all the chaff in these forums to get to the kernel of useful postings. I'm sure some folks will miss the thrill of drama and being the center of attention now that their annoying rampages are no longer broadcast to masses through the Popular Posts listing, but I'm sure they'll adapt.
