In User Preferences->Homepage, there are currently
options to exclude all stories from any author. On
Slashdot itself, this allows users to exclude stories
posted by any set of authors, from JonKatz to sengan
(for example). Additionally, we should allow
administrators to manually add users to this "exclude"
list. On Slashdot itself, this of course means Klerck
and Reality Master 101. This would allow users to turn
off Klerck and RM101 in their user prefs.
I know, I know, it's such an intuitive feature, you
don't know why I thought of it first.
