# Can I actually ignore my ignored tags?

I decided to finally go ahead start using the ignored tags feature. So I added "homework" as an ignored tag - but the homework questions are still there on the main page, they're just greyed out, like this:

Is it possible to make them disappear entirely? This is a last-ditch attempt to filter out some of the noise on this site and make it seem interesting again, and if I still have to scroll past all the greyed-out homework questions it's not going to be as effective.

• Are you sure you're on the main page? Ignored tags are fully ignored for me on the SO main page. – Manishearth Sep 12 '13 at 15:39
• Huh. The same happens for me. Bug? – Manishearth Sep 12 '13 at 15:41
• I added an image just in case. – Nathaniel Sep 12 '13 at 15:44
• One thing you can do is use a user style (using a user script or an extension like Stylish) that sets the style for .tagged-ignored to display:none – Manishearth Sep 12 '13 at 15:44

• Some of the hw questions are good, though; you shouldn't filter them. – Abhimanyu Pallavi Sudhir Sep 12 '13 at 15:52
• @DImension10AbhimanyuPS I know some of them are good, and I don't really want to filter anything - but lately there is just too much noise and I've been losing interest in the site as a result. I'm hoping that this crude filter will help to change that a little. – Nathaniel Sep 12 '13 at 15:54
• Yeah, unfortunately it's September, and we're getting a LOT of HW questions, as usual. – Manishearth Sep 12 '13 at 16:11
