Would you prefer the topic of Low Oxygen Brewing to become a separate subforum, along with an update to forum filtering capability if possible, such that any selected subforums could be completely blocked or ignored on a user-specific basis?

No, I see absolutely no advantage or reason for separation or blocking anything.  Everyone should be able to see everything, even if they don't like or agree with it.
16 (61.5%)
Yes, there are topics and subforums that I have zero interest in, or that I feel negative towards, that I'd rather just never have to see, at all, ever.
8 (30.8%)
Maybe, this is an idea that deserves to be entertained and voted upon.
0 (0%)
I'm not wearing any pants; or I couldn't care less about forum structure or ability to block stuff and I wouldn't use it even if it were possible.

Separate Subforum for Low Oxygen Brewing?

I figured this *might* be a good way to see what everyone is truly feeling on this topic.

Results will not be posted for the first 5 days.

I will add the fact that Bryan requested something like this in the past (and Bryan, feel free to comment below if you've changed your mind at all):

Cheers all.

This is a perfect opportunity for all you LURKERS out there to be heard, and not just those who may or may not be dicks.

I'd say no. People need to learn to behave, rules can't make people do that.
Don't buy stale beer.

Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Hmm.  61/31 split is quite different from what I'd expected.  Now we know.  Not that it matters.

I think that might be counter productive.  What about a dedicated child board under the all grain category kinda like the cask/barrel board under the bottling kegging category?  I am just spitballin' here but I feel that might allow a topic that has become quite large to have an established presence and easy access for those who are interested?
