It's broken, the 'Active Sports' filter is only applied for page 1 where a few threads like the UK General Election get removed, but soon as I go to page 2 I'm greeted with the gardening thread, beer garden, UK economy and jokes thread.

Those get filtered out only if I manually add the "&topicstldw=sports" filter to my URL. Then when I go back to page 1, the filter is gone.

Thank you Dallas, there's only so much gardening talk one can tolerate!! ;)

I speak in jest, of course. However, I suspect that segregating the remaining active userbase further will only hinder the overall activity going forward, it looks more like an attempt at appeasement than a serious attempt at redirecting posting activity from offtopic topics to sports related topics.

We're not wanting or trying to redirect where people post, for those who want to read and post in all topics nothing has changed

But for those who are only interested in the sports and trading topics the new link just gives them an easy way of accessing those topics
