Not sure if this is already a feature or if it's possible to have some subs pretty much just not show up ever? or at least when you click "New Posts"

simple fix a few of us have found. when u see a politics thread pop up on what's new, click on the OP username that shows. it will give u the little pop-up w their profile. click ignore. you will no longer see any threads they start show up in your feed.

theres only a handful of ppl that are the main posters in that sub so it only takes a few days of doing that and your update feed will be stress free :)

This is dead easy with a UserScript! Figuring out how to install this with TamperMonkey or the UserScript manager of your choice (or add TnT) is an exercise for the reader. Definitely improves the New Posts experience and you still can see the posts of Politics denizens when they venture out into the grow sections. This could break if RIU changes the structure of the New Posts pages. ...and you have to make all the @ author/match/grant stuff lower case, RIU thinks those are usernames. Whatever, good luck!

let links = document.querySelectorAll("a[href=\"/f/politics.47/\"]")

for (let i = 0; i < links.length; i++) {
let row = links[ i ].parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode
row.parentNode.removeChild(row)
}
