Since this site won't get rid of any of the useless features. here is what i've done.
i've blocked some of those features with my adblocker. right clicked on the items that i don't want to see anymore and clicked "block element" the site looks cleaner now. got rid the a lot of the useless crud in the drop down menus from displaying, and i blocked the Famous thoughts menu. i'll post a pic in the comments (click on it to make it bigger).
Also blocked the achievements, top inviters, hall of fame, and a few others.
