Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I apologize if this question is a duplicate (I did do some searching of Meta before asking), but is it possible to remove highlighting from certain posts if one or more tags are enabled? I know that there are several questions related to this idea for the search function, but there were none that I could find for post highlighting.

For example, my language of choice is Perl, and hence I'm interested in the Regex tag. I don't really know Ruby, so I'd like to have posts with both Regex and Ruby tags to not be highlighted. Would this be possible to do?

If you have in your ignored list then posts with that tag will be dimmed. This includes posts with tags from your favourite list.

You can also hide ignored tags - from the preferences tab of your profile.

Not ideal, but gets you part way there.

Ah, I had the mistaken impression that posts with an ignored tag would not appear in the feed at all. While not ideal, this is definitely an acceptable alternative. Thanks! – Jack Maney Jul 14 '11 at 16:24
