The return of General Banter
From now on, General Banter will only be filtered for guests, not when you're logged in (previously no General Banter discussions showed on the main page for anyone).
Members can change what categories show up on their main page on their own. Go here: http://newbuddhist.com/categories/all
and click "Unfollow" on any category you don't wish to see. It will remove those discussions from the main list, and remove that category from the sidebar.
To see categories you've unfollowed, go back to the link above, and look in the sidebar for "Category Management". That will let you show all and change your settings.
