This question already has an answer here:

I would like to request an option to be able to dismiss a specific hot network question. I am thinking of something like being able to click on an x near the question that would prevent it from appearing again.

Just as an example:

example

While that Ukrainian Language question might be a good question. I have no idea what it is asking (even after clicking on it). An example that I would like to dismiss.

  • Why exactly? They're not exactly intrusive, so why dismiss them? – Bart Mar 7 '17 at 17:14

    @Bart because I like to hop around and view some of the hot network questions that catch my eye. Think of it like a news feed of the site after you are done being able to dismiss it and get a new question for that slot. – Halfwarr Mar 7 '17 at 17:19
  • So in addition you would like it to act as a set of slots to be filled with new content, as soon as you dismiss content you're no longer interested in? – Bart Mar 7 '17 at 17:24

    @Bart I could see that being useful as well but just mainly I would just love an option of I've already seen this question enough times/does not interest me so I don't see it over and over again – Halfwarr Mar 7 '17 at 17:30

    Now if they could just make it possible to scratch a HNQ from the list by the actual site community itself for everybody across the network, we'd be solving the core problem behind HNQ. – Nij Mar 7 '17 at 18:29

    The Ukranian ones shouldn't actually be showing up. There's supposed to be a filter that excludes non-English questions from appearing in the HNQ but it has to be turned on manually. – Catija Mar 7 '17 at 22:31

I would like to request an option to be able to dismiss a specific hot network question

You can use the Stack Overflow Extras (SOX) user script to do this.

One of its many useful options is to filter the Hot Network Questions list in several different ways:

  • block by word

  • block by site

  • block by title (regexp)

enter image description here

In your case you would enable "block by site".
