Why not block the ability of anyone who hasn't "qualified" to post in Current Affairs from viewing it. I find it rather frustrating when I click on an interesting thread title in "today's posts", not realising it is in CA, reading through and then feeling the need to comment and then realising I can't. A total waste of time. No point in reading something on a forum if you cannot comment, I might as well read the newspaper. Yes, you could argue that it is easy enough for me to check what section it is in but then why tempt me by allowing me to read a juicy sounding title anyway.
Equally frustrating is that often the subject matter is not particularly controversial in the usual CA sense but the OP decided to place it there instead of somewhere like OT.
I'd rather not see the topics at all than see them but sit quietly in the corner like a good little boy and not say anything.
