Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

Where and how do I go about hiding the posts that match any of the tags on my ignored list?

  • Go to your profile page.
  • Click on the Edit Profile & Settings tab.
  • Click on the Preferences sub tab.
  • Underneath the Ignored Tags section are two radio buttons, labelled: "Hide questions in your ignored tags" and "Gray out questions in your ignored tags".
  • Check the "Hide questions in your ignored tags" and then go about your business.

ignore at your own tag choice

It will autosave the preference once you check/uncheck. Now, when you're viewing a list of questions, those marked with any of your ignored tags will be removed from view.

They're taken out of your view when they get to your side of things, so keep that in mind when paging through with set amounts per page listings. i.e. if you're thumbing through 50 a page, but you only count 40 on the page at a time, then 10 are being hidden.

Removal done client-side though. – random Sep 29 '09 at 10:16
Meant client side - do'h – ChrisF Sep 29 '09 at 14:02
Good comment about the removal being done client side. There's been a couple of "bugs" reported about that. – ChrisF Sep 29 '09 at 14:03
