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.

  • 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

  • I edited in the better pic. Please use the Insert Picture tool in the editor in the future, so we can avoid broken links. Sep 19, 2011 at 5:40
  • @LanceRoberts: my server works, too. ImgUR deletes image after 3m after inactivity

  • Actually, according to this answer, SE has a Pro account, and the images will never be deleted. Sep 19, 2011 at 14:08
  • @LanceRoberts: ah, good find. Didn't know this

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.
