Is it possibile to unblock all blocked threads with one keystroke?

Does management have any idea of what thread is blocked by the most members? (my money is on the Hot Blond Wager)

It's definitely down to the HB wager, one of the dice control threads, or one of the political threads. I bet the decision 2012 or obamacare thread slightly edges the HB wager, since that one at least has to do with gambling. FWIW, the HB wager thread is the only one of these that I haven't blocked.

To answer you first question: No, but you should be able to move your mouse to the 'Unblock' link of the first blocked thread, and just keep clicking in that position, allowing the page to reload in between clicks.

To answer your second question, the top 5 blocked threads are:

1) Spanish word of the day
2) Gun show loophole rant
3) 2012-2013 NBA picks
4) Recipe thread
5) Casino chip of the day

Chip of the day? Wow. That's shocking.

I can understand a lack of interest, but blocked?

I block stuff I have no interest in. Especially regularly updated threads that don't appeal to me.

Don't take it as a bad thing.

I don't subscribe or receive e-mails for anything except PM's. As a result I have never blocked a thread, only posters. Right now EB is the only person I have blocked.

How much money were you willing to bet? The HB challenge was loved by all..... The other threads heavily blocked tend NOT to be gambling threads (recipe, gun, spanish word, etc...) The HB thread was the purest gambling thread this forum has ever seen.... odds, money, woman, intrigue, what more could you want?

Because there are only ten viewable threads in the preview pane of active threads, blocking a thread that comes everyday at the top that you don't read adds more veiwable realestate to that area.

Hardly loved by all. Turned into a war and caused the most suspensions of any thread. In usenet days it was called a "flame war" before that word got other meanings.

I have all these blocked plus about 2000 more.
I counted them months ago and there were
1300, has to be 2000 by now, I block most new
threads right away.
