Some questions deemed "hot" turn out to be not only uninteresting to me but actively bad (as a current example, take this one). After I downvoted such a question, it should no longer show up in my view of hot questions.
edit Please note this suggestion differs from Hide Hot Questions? in using downvotes instead of a new-to-be-implemented "mark-as-uninteresting" mechanism. This request here simply uses downvotes (which may have been cast independently of the hot-question list).
