I was just wondering about a new option in the game if we could disable picking up blue and white items.
It would just drop and we could see it, but you couldn't pick up! This would make the game a little bit smoother I guess.
What's your oppinion guys?
The ideal solution would be to have a customizable filter in the options which item category/quality...
1) ... to display on the ground
2) ... and which to auto-pickup.
This way every player could adjust the looting process according to their preference regardless of difficulty level, MP or whatnot.
Other games (e.g. like Dungeon Siege) had this feature many, many years ago, so a much better game like Diablo 3 should absolutely have this, too.
I agree some sort of option would be nice, either a filter of a press-to-loot bindable key, like PoE has. Other ARPGs just have the filter and it works fine too, when you feel the need to loot those blues you just can do it or disable the filter momentarily.
Filter + NoPickup combination would be great. I always use options to display all item labels. Filtering out gray, white, and (dark) blue combined with no pickup, so i could not pick them up accidentaly would save me a lot of annoyance, not to mention now with 1.08 whites drops like rain, really breaks the fluidity of combat, because of the not so accurate targeting the game has.
Some builds will pick up more stuff on the floor by mistake and I am fully behind the implement of a non-pick up button.
Last night I had a 60+ monster kill streak in a party game and I was CM wiz, ended up picking up 6 items on the floor as my screen was fully spammed items...
Let's hope it does :)

How about a grid of radio buttons? :)
I absolutely second that, a grid of radio buttons would be the perfect way of implementing it. Following DarthJDG's great suggestion, I even propose additional column and rows:
no drop, no label, no pickup, manual pickup, auto pickup
normal, magic, rare, legendary, set, gems, potions, pages/tomes, recipes, ingredients (like Demonic Essence)
Should not be too hard to implement, so I guess the whole community hopes that this happens. Hope you guys at Blizzard are reading this... ;-)
