How do I ignore an individual question?

I keep seeing the same question make the front page for the last few days. I don't want to ignore the tag, but I would like to ignore that question. Anything I can do?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
I'd rather you put the tick on "random" - his comment, after all. –  Marc Gravell Oct 2 '09 at 15:56
    
@Marc You put "quotes" there like it's a dirty "word." –  random Oct 2 '09 at 16:00
    
It occurs to me that actively changing a setting to ignore something is the opposite of really ignoring it. –  Joel Coehoorn Oct 2 '09 at 16:36
    
@Joel Coehoorn - I don't agree. Have you ever used IRC or been in trade chat on WoW? Two places where /ignore is invaluable at times. –  Jeremy Roberts Oct 2 '09 at 17:17

Change your view and forget about looking at the front page.

  • Click Questions

  • Click Newest tab

No problem any more as the floating question gets pushed further back every day. If you want to view Active, then that's just how the bubble bobbles.

Taking a look at the actual question in question, What's the worst security hole you've ever seen? it's apparently the only question making use of the [security-hole] tag.

You should be good to ignore that specific tag and not have it invade your eyeball space in future.

Maybe edit your comment into this too? –  Marc Gravell Oct 2 '09 at 15:57

Re "random" quotes - that is mainly to distinguish them from random quotes, whi"ch ar"e "li"ke th"is. Or picking an answer at random. –  Marc Gravell Oct 3 '09 at 6:59

Which question, and what is causing it to bump? If it is being inappropriately edited (etc) we can lock it. Other than that, I find "not looking at it" works fairly well for me...

But if there is a problem on this question, let us know. Flagging for moderator on the site would work, or raising it here...

There may also be a grease-monkey script somewhere; there usually is...

@jrob You don't want to just ignore the security-hole tag? It's the only question using it right now. –  random Oct 2 '09 at 15:52
    
security-hole works, i was thinking more of subjective. Thanks! –  Jeremy Roberts Oct 2 '09 at 15:54
    
I'm included to fully agree with random's comment... –  Marc Gravell Oct 2 '09 at 15:55

Hey: 10K club FTW! –  Joel Coehoorn Oct 2 '09 at 16:33
    
Also: whenever I come across a question using tag that is exclusive to that question, I almost always remove the tag. I wouldn't count on 'security-hole' staying with the question forever... (that said, I'll leave this one alone just for you. If it disappears, I didn't do it). –  Joel Coehoorn Oct 2 '09 at 16:42
    
If it sticks with it long enough for the discussion to die down, i am happy. :) –  Jeremy Roberts Oct 2 '09 at 17:15
