Actually, I like HNQ, and I'd love to see some of those questions from time to time. However, it's a distraction when I'm working, so I would like to disable it (when/where I'm working). In
Edit profile and settings > SITE SETTINGS > Preferences, we have
Hide Hot Network Questions, which is good. But after checking it, there is no way to unhide it when I don't mind seeing them (without going through the settings again and the possibility of forgetting to turn it back on afterward).
I would suggest that we either add:
a collapsible HNQ pane that shows just a title and an unhide/expand button; or
a per-browser HNQ setting
I know there are userscripts that do the same thing (hide/unhide), so why don't we make it part of this site?
