No it's just some threads are not worth mine, or anyone's time. Like imptrash and frog bait. And the reason I filter Normie is because he (or at least he used to, I'm not sure anymore) derails threads all the time with his discord buddies, which does annoy me.
There are also generals that I have no interest in, like risk threads and Kpop threads. I don't hate those threads or find them painful, there's just no point in me seeing them since I will never post or lurk in them and they're always at the top of page 1.
Filters just make things easier.
