Hide shovelware mods Merged

I hate having to see shovelware mods that always add the same rhyme of stuff: weapons, tools, armor, ores, mobs and dimensions. No well-designed mechanic like magic and tech mods like Thaumcraft, Ender IO or TerraFirmaCraft. No, it's the same uncreative suck-on-your-thumb crap that any properly made mod could implement better and more performantly.

So take these shovelware mods and put them in a separate category. If the author doesn't provide a link to their GitHub with the actual JAVA code present (NO DISCORD, NO YOUTUBE, NOT SOME WIKIA PAGE), then it doesn't belong in the prestigious Mods category, but shovelware category.
