There's already a question on how to hide the "Hot Network Questions" from the sidebar on all Stack Exchange sites. The most popular answer suggests adding
###hot-network-questions to your adblocker's filter options.
While this works great, afterwards I still see distracting chatroom and newsletter ads as well as "Linked" and "Related" questions. Is there a way to hide all of these as well so that nothing except the top sidebar div for question stats remains?
Also, is there any chance that Stack Exchange might make the sidebar configurable from one's own user profile at some point in the future?
