Filtering, Hiding threads, and threads per page.

So, using the 4chan settings, there are two things I use a lot. Filtering and the "Hide Thread Stubs."
But why don't they work together?
When I manually hide a post, I don't see the thread stub at all and it's as if it wasn't there at all (kind of, read on). But when someone posts and I've filtered them, I can still see the stub, and I don't like that.
Also, it would be nice if hidden thread's don't actually lower the post count you can see on a single page. So, say I hide a thread and there is only 14 threads on a single page. If I refresh and on server side the hidden post is still there and I cannot see it, I still only see 14 posts. If I hide a thread, with no stub at all, the second page threads should roll over into the first page for me, so that I always see 15 threads on a single page.

Something odd recently happened to me. Usually when I make a topic that doesn't catch on I put silly, random, occasionally shocking images - such as illicit sexual activity with a horse. Of course I don't actually support or condone animal abuse in any way, but it's funny to see people get rustled over it. Occasionally I get the typical 3-day ban, whatev.
But I did the same thing a few days ago using family internet (home for the holidays). It says I have been banned for 90 days for posting ILLEGAL material. Whoa, that sounds like some serious shit. As far as I can tell the act is illegal in US, but not just having pictures of it (and certainly not just a few gifs). I'm not too concerned about the ban since I can clearly get past it (not that I ban-dodge on a regular basis), I'm just wondering if I should be expecting any visits from the police over this.

Is avatar-fagging against the rules? There are a couple of people in /sp/ (and probably other boards, I assume), who always avatar-fag i.e., every post they make they have a picture of their waifu or some other shit. There is one faggot in particular on /sp/ who every 30 seconds posts a picture of some rugby player that he's obsessed with, and he'll do it in every rugby thread.
Honestly, it's the worst type of spam. Their posts are nothing but a picture of some moron who they're obsessed with. They contribute nothing to the thread, and are really nothing more than just bullshit spam.
ISP bans on and off

I've been banned for more than half a year so far, because of abuse from my ISP apparently. No idea what that's about.
Thing is, it randomly happens. For the past 3 years or so, I'd randomly get banned for 5-6 months then I'd get unbanned. Now for the past four months it just seems to go on and off. I'd be banned for three weeks, be allowed to post for two days, then get banned for another two weeks and so on.
Is there any logic to this? Is the system automated or something?
It's starting to get frustrating having to try and post to check and see if I'm still banned and hope I've rolled the dice in my favor, only to get ISP banned again the day after.
