# Filter tags server side instead of client side

I have 30 ignored tags on SO. When I load a page it takes several seconds for the client-side code to remove questions (during which time the browser is frozen). Sometimes this results in far fewer questions per page than normal (16 instead of 30 when I checked just now). If the filtering was done on the server side, the "frozen browser" effect would be avoided and the number of questions on the page would be correct.

• Why are you ignoring so many tags? What tags? Do tell do tell! – Welbog Jan 8 '10 at 14:48
• @Susan: I just dropped one, so 29 now: perl, rails, python, django, mac*, unix*, f#, php, mvc, wpf, r, delphi, nhibernate, code-golf, mysql, oracle, java, c++, jquery, silverlight, mfc, iphone, ruby, actionscript*, flash, *flex, linux, matlab, android – user27414 Jan 8 '10 at 14:55
• Oh great, the *'s in the tags didn't quite work right. – user27414 Jan 8 '10 at 14:56
• Why are you ignoring all of those neat things? – Welbog Jan 8 '10 at 14:57
• To make sure I don't miss all the really interesting questions (like the ones tagged lasers). – user27414 Jan 8 '10 at 15:01
• 30? That's nothing. 100 and counting. – random Jan 8 '10 at 15:02
• @Jon B: Isn't that what favourite tags are for? – Welbog Jan 8 '10 at 15:03
• @Susan: I use those, too. I have nine interesting tags. That way c# is highlighted, asp.net is not, and php is ignored. – user27414 Jan 8 '10 at 15:04
• @Jon B: But then how can you learn about PHP? – Welbog Jan 8 '10 at 15:08

• Your reasoning is different, but I consider this a dupe: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9787/… – Ladybug Killer Jan 8 '10 at 17:11
