Blocked categories is too weird

edited November 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I'm cornfused big-time. When I block categories in this forum as a humble member, I can still ...

... display all the discussions in that category.
... assign that category when creating a discussion.

I assumed it would hide the discussions and prevent the assignment. What is the design point for this feature? In street language, huh?

EDIT: Ah, I see. It hides the chosen category from displaying in the main discussion list. Might I suggest 'Hide Category From Discussion List' as a possible text change for a minor point release someday? I know it's verbose but it is the only way I would be able to connect its real function to a label.

    I assumed all it did was to filter the "blocked" category from discussions list, that's what I've been telling my people.
