I want to know if there is a way to filter sites like Facebook or Twitter from not showing up cause it makes digging for that "one piece of info i read last week" all the more difficult to find again. I know Chrome's incognito will show no traces of your history but I need more of a filter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've been wanting to find this answer for quite some time so I am excited to hear any thoughts.

To be honest the fastest solution would be to ring up the history menu (cmd+Y) type facebook/twitter in the search bar and delete everything that comes up... A bit laborious but you don't need to dig for info too often, right?

Or maybe going into incognito mode only for facebook or twitter would be faster. Both methods only take a few seconds.

I private browse while in this forum - for probably a similar reason as the OP. I can see how having a 'do not save' list would be useful though. Maybe there's a plug-in for that?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
