Is there any way to get rid of "Deals you may have missed" ?

The "Deals you may have missed" isn't in chronological order. It just seems to show things SD wants to promote for it's own reasons.

I really just want to see a chronological list, making it easy to see what I actually missed. I really hate that section.

Any way I can kill that section off and just get a decent chronological listing back? Or maybe there's a magic search I can do to unbreak the web site?

Seems like SD ought to be amazingly and ridiculously profitable just on the referral links, that they feel the need to break the web site to squeeze even more dollars out with ads and sponsored posts and such is just, sadly routine in the world I guess.

The Deals You May Have Missed section doesn't go away on the home page but once you click "Next" at the bottom of the page you hit the chronological sorting of previous day's deals that are still alive.

I do really wish I could just turn it off though.

With all the ads, and things that are ads but pretend to not be ads, it's getting so visually cluttered that it's making it a pain to find deals I'd actually be interested in. And of course there's the paid placement crap requiring a triple check to see if a deal really is one at all.

Shame they can't spend a similar amount of time and money keeping the trolling down.
