You can turn connected textures off in the config file. but on a per block basis would be nice, and the fact that texturing isn't standard to forge is really making me mad now.... :/
I'm aware of the config option. That doesn't solve the "issue", though.
I brought this up a while ago, when it was first implemented - or soon thereafter. Certain blocks, such as the huge cobblestone tiles, I felt would be better off not connected (as tiles are generally.. well.. tiled, and not one giant square), namely because it messed with my own build. AUTOMATIC_MAIDEN agreed that some blocks shouldn't have connected textures, and that some others possibly should, so I was asked to create a list of those blocks.
I simply got distracted with things and it fell to the back burner. Now that I've been reminded, I'll have to get back to finishing that off.
