How many threads have you hidden?

I've spent the day clicking on active topics, scrolling and hiding at least 3 election/political posts each time. I think I must have done so about 20/30 times today, and it's only going to scale up from tomorrow on isn't it?
I'm bored by the handwringing of it all, vote or don't vote for whoever you choose, I just come here for parking threads, embarrassing anecdotes and light relief!

Yeah, everyone is coming from it with their own ideology or standpoint and it just descends into name calling or low level insults.
People will obviously disagree with one another, it's just so tedious how formulaic it's become, and how constant the stream of new threads to go over old ground.

Its a luxury for the threads to be a mere irritation and not about something that could seriously affect you and your family.
If people are passionate they are usually terrified.
I wish the Tories were just a subject for irritating debate on MN and not a party who has fucked up my kids future. Really. They have (see disability cuts thread)
Still, if it's a bit irksome.. hide the threads, I agree

Some people are actually using the correct Topic.

Threads where people kick off about something massively trivial then drip feed that they have anxiety and depression as soon as other posters start to tell them they're being irrational.
Threads where people are screaming, wailing, sobbing, weeping, distraught, traumatised, fuming, livid about not being able to buy the correct cucumber and the shop assistant was brusque. Bonus points if said assistant didn't smile at their super cute DC.
Threads titled 'triggering' when they mention a fucking hole in some bread or something.
I'm not feeling very patient or tolerant at the moment.

Its incessant very boring and yes there s no debate just name callin
I read some of them then get really wound up, am tempted to post and then usually avoid. But my blood pressure is already higher by that stage!
Although I'm loving this thread as I forgot you can hide threads!! So thank you OP!
