It's not an obligation, it's your choice.

Many religious denominations are required to spread their gospel.  Such as the Pastafarians, members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.  Recently a Pastafarian made news when he initially wasn't allowed to wear his religious headgear, a colander, for his drivers license picture.  http://www.venganza.org/

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark;  the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

Bigotry disguised as religious liberty is still BIGOTRY

I don't see much need of it.  I imagine this is about the few "Faith and Wrestling" threads lately.  There is a good case for those not belonging in Wrestling > College; unfortunately, we do tend to allow general wrestling-related topics there, because people have complained that the other categories don't get enough traffic.

For the immediate problem:  you do realize that if you ignore a particular user, threads which that user has started will no longer show up in your category listing?

Went to college wrestling forum and the first two threads were shameless plugs for a religious book.

Yeah, that doesn't distinguish it in an important way from shameless plugs for non-religious books.  Is ignore not going to work for you?

He could, but if the point is to not see something he finds objectionable, ignore is the way to go.  If such things came in regularly, from different users, a separate area would be worth considering, since ignore would not, then, be a viable option.

The part that I find slightly annoying is that Wrestling > College tends to be a catch-all, rather than strictly on-topic.  That's not specific to the present issue, though.

Weird...jamman actually kept alive and contributed to a religious thread, religiously.  I just ignored it and didn't whine about it.
Several are on "ignore".   I won't argue with the ignorant and disrespectful..
