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.

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.

Maybe, this is an idea that deserves to be entertained and voted upon.

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.

The answer to both of those is no.  If we do that, then we have to establish a forum for every method of brewing.  What needs to happen is for people to monitor their own behavior.

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?

This is a dead issue. It will never happen. Nor would anyone want it. We have our own forum and a subforum here wouldn't solve anything.

That kid looks just like me!!!!   ;D

And what happens when (NOT IF, but WHEN) people do NOT monitor their own behavior?  (And PLEASE, don't answer that with words -- it's friggin rhetorical!)

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

I partially agree, but the even from a organizational perspective as a relative new comer to the forum it would be nice to have one place to go for questions on it for knowledgeable answers for something that has become so big on the forums.  I mean the intro to lodo post is up to like 91 pages now.  That is a pretty intimidating thread to go though, where a child board could split it up a bit more and make it more digestible.  I am not in favor of separate or more involved moderation and cutting ideas and agree that everyone needs to monitor their own behavior but it is to the point it could really use its own "file" as it were.  Just coming from what would be helpful for me.  YMMV.
