I know I could simply not interact with it but I cannot not see what is most of the time irrelevant content to me. I am not interested in the "Hot Network Questions" list and I am glad that I can turn it off.
Could we have a similar option to hide "Featured on Meta"?
Please note that this isn't the same question as How to hide "HOT META POSTS" on the sidebar - I am not asking how to do this via a user script but to have it as an option in the user settings page.
Don't get me wrong; meta sites are useful but I know where to find them when I need support or want to make suggestions.
Given the ongoing developments with SE & its community, I hope this feature request isn't seen as disrespectful to anyone involved. It certainly isn't my intention!
