I'm wondering if there's a setting that will allow me to never see a specific thread again. If so, please share.

(Why, you may ask? It's a really stupid reason, I admit, but there are a few threads here that have titles that are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. It's my problem, not the OP's. Also, some threads just go off the rails and I don't want to be bothered.)

Not exactly, but if you use the "Notify" feature instead of "Show new replies" you can reduce sightings considerably.

See Suggestion for New Rule/FAQ to Optimize Use of Forum for details.

A couple of people have built code to do this - but I cannot remember their names. I think @ender may be one of them.

I think that info should be in this topic though.
