Block online quizzes
Short, concise description of the idea
A user preference that will enable online quiz blocking.
Full description of the idea
Online quizzes were kind of amusing at first, but now they have become a nuisance by filling up my friend's page with them. My idea is to add simple filtering to find possible quiz posts and replace them with a <lj-cut> link that will indicate that the post probably contains quiz data, and to click on it if you want to read it.

An ordered list of benefits
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

Whenever it would encounter this, it would do what I suggested above in the Full Description. All the tests now seem to have this, so it would be effective enough to catch maybe 60% (?) of them.
This list would have to be maintained by a trusted source as there would be the potential to block legitimate posts.
