Couple of new features and a bug fix.
1. New functionality: Option to exclude closed threads. This applies both in the admin settings for the global trending topics page and individually in each [bd] Framework Widget.
2. New functionality: Content by ignored users is not shown. The Trending Topics main page has a link option to show ignored users if there are any. It appears in the bottom-right on the same row as the nav bar.
