Is there a way to ignore individual posts/questions?

So, for example, the top question for "Highest Voted Questions" list is always What’s your favorite “programmer” cartoon?

I've seen this post and I no longer wish to see it, can I mark this as "Read"?

I know you can have "ignored tags" but there are lots of C# questions that I'm either not interested in, or don't know enough about to answer and I don't want to ignore all C# questions so setting C# as an ignored tag would hide potentially interesting questions as well.

  • Is this the right place to ask this question? Or should I post this on Stack Overflow itself?

    No, this is the right place. Don't post questions about stackoverflow on stackoverflow.

Not currently. If you want to view sorted by votes, I highly recommend browsing questions by tag instead.

Just click any tag to get started, then use the "related tags" sidebar to begin combining them.. or do something more advanced

You could modify the Ignore User(s) Script to ignore questions based upon their id instead...

  • This is, logically, exactly what I'd like, however I do wonder what the script performance would be like once there were thousands of article IDs
