What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

In light of the recent influx of poorly worded Facebook-related questions, I would like to hide all questions with a Facebook tag.

The Ability to Hide Questions was asked in 2009. Are there any updates to this request?

It would be better if you helped edit or vote to close the bad questions so that the site can be improved. Or if Stack Overflow made a 2 point rep minimum instead of 1 to ask (Facebook) questions. –  bkaid Sep 19 '11 at 5:33

Insert * in your Profile in the Prefs tab, like so:

* to ignore everything related to Facebook, add a star after facebook

You know, that is only visible if you try to go directly to stackoverflow.com and not from any /... page. That looks exactly like what i want –  Foo Bah Sep 19 '11 at 5:17
    
@FooBah: sure I do –  genesis Sep 19 '11 at 5:26
    
I edited in the better pic. Please use the Insert Picture tool in the editor in the future, so we can avoid broken links. –  Lance Roberts Sep 19 '11 at 5:40
    
@LanceRoberts: my server works, too. ImgUR deletes image after 3m after inactivity –  genesis Sep 19 '11 at 10:44
    
Actually, according to this answer, SE has a Pro account, and the images will never be deleted. –  Lance Roberts Sep 19 '11 at 14:08
    
@LanceRoberts: ah, good find. Didn't know this –  genesis Sep 19 '11 at 14:09

It seems like you could modify the GM script given in the main answer to filter by the tags you care about.

Having said that, a higher level of ignore might be a nice feature, if you only wanted some tags to be hidden and others not to be. Otherwise genesis' answer is what you want.
