I can imagine a feature for users to mark topics to "ignore". That way, they won't show up as indicators for new posts.
For instance; If there were a topic I'm not interested in (A), but in a forum with topics that I AM interested in (B), it would be nice if that new messages in topic A wouldn't mark that forum as having new messages.
Of course, that idea would have to be worked out properly. For instance; if there were notifications originating from such topics (mentions, quotes, etc.), should those be ignored as well? And what if I have posted once in some slowchat topic that I don't want to follow anymore and choose to ignore, would that topic still show up in the active topic list or in "Your posts"? Etc. etc.
In essence though, I see a proper use case for such a feature, if worked out properly.
