Default Disable "Related Threads" on Mobile

If there is a way to disable the "Related Threads" on mobile, can someone please advise how? If not, can this *please* be added? Thanks.

I have both of these disabled on the PC, but want he ability in mobile (and don't want to use the "View full site" mode).

Sorry I missed the mobile part. You are correct this can not be disabled on mobile.

Why is this? If anything, mobile needs this option *more*. Thanks

This is probably a better question for IB team but I'll try my best lol. The infinite scroll works better for mobile so you don't have to reload a whole entire web page every time so this option is not able to be disabled and infinite scroll and related threads are tied together so in turn related threads cant be disabled. Maybe someone who knows more than me will chime in.

We have no plans to disable related threads on the mobile template at this time. We have continued to add spacing and banners to clearly show that there is another thread on deck if you continue scrolling to differentiate the threads.

Why not give users the option?
I am not the only one who finds this "feature" to be more of a problem than a benefit.

Yeah, I guess I should have thought of that.
