One of the benefits of having an active posting community is the attached result of threads moving down quickly and off the front posting page in a forum.
If we stop responding to pointless topics and provocative posts, these threads quickly fall off the radar. Considering the recent fur that went flying and the attendant furballs that were coughed up, I know it's hard not to to be provoked. Still, it seems like with the problem resolved, it'd be great to see the resulting thread go bye-bye.
Since a number of members are sensitive to outright censorship and deletion, is there a way (other than time) to facilitate a quick removal of such threads from the top page within a forum, especially once they're resolved?
