A few days ago, <span><a class="ajax" href="at?id=forwardslash">forwardslash</a>~ presented us with a <span><a title="http://hubski.com/pub?id=45119" href="http://hubski.com/pub?id=45119>nice script</a>~ that removed all posts with ignored users and tags from your feed, even if someone shared it with you.
As forwardslash noted, this absolute ignoring functionality is something that several people have requested.
I decided it's time that we make ignoring work that way.
Starting today, ignoring completely removes content from your feed. Thus, you can now follow U.S. hubskiers, but ignore their posts with the <span class="usertrigger"><a class="ajax" href="hash?id=politics">#politics</a>~ or <span class="usertrigger"><a class="ajax" href="hash?id=uspolitics">#uspolitics</a>~ tags. I know, a bit too late for that. :)
As always, feedback is much appreciated.
p.s. I hate to render forwardslash's post-ignoring script obsolete. However, the comment-ignoring part of his script still does something that we don't. Thanks forwardslash!
Why do I feel like Twitter?
