So, I know we can disable them, but is there any way to actually remove them from your collection, so they're not downloaded on new computers, etc?

I've tested a few mods that I didn't end up liking, or that didn't work right, and the fact that I can't just figure out how to uninstall them really gets on my nerves. It also makes me leery to try other mods, since if I don't like them they'll just be sitting there taking up space for no reason. Obviously just deleting the files from the 'Collection' folder doesn't work, as the game automatically downloads all the missing mods that are in my collection...

I've been playing this game for months now, and this should be a beginner-level task, but somehow I just can't figure it out! If anyone can help, it'd be very much appreciated.

 Actually yes. You can’t remove it from your collection entirely, but you can disable it from being downloaded on the computer you’re currently using. When you start the game and login, click on the “Mod Collection” button at the top. From there, click on the mod or expansion you don’t want to download, and then click on “Disable Extension” down in the bottom left corner. It will probably still download the first time, but you should be able to delete it from your Collection folder without it downloading again at that point.

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)

Ah, yes, I knew how to disable them, though I wasn't aware it would prevent them re-downloading as well. I was hoping there was a way to remove them from my collection itself. Anyway, thanks for the prompt reply, AssumedPseudonym.

Stupid code. Do what I want, not what I typed in!
