This question already has an answer here:

On stackoverflow I have Emacs as a favorite tag, and many tags involved with HTML ignored. However, there could be the scenerio of an HTML user wanting advice about Emacs, I would still like to see those questions. Will I still see the questions tagged both Emacs and HTML?

You will still see those questions, but they'll be displayed in a dimmed fashion.

I follow the python tag, for example, but ignore C++, so I see this:

You can hide questions with ignored tags altogether though, but you have to do so explicitly. On your prefs screen (from your profile) you can check the hide ignored tags option:

    I think that if you choose to hide ignored tags though, you won't see those questions at all. – Shadow Nov 5 '12 at 11:12
