This is what it looks like when I "ignore" a tag:
As you can see, the question, rather than being ignored, is just made harder to read, and still takes up just as much room on the "front page". Here, I'm ignoring the [big-list] tag. (Am I doing something wrong?)
Question: Is there a way to actually ignore questions with certain tags?
This would be quite a problem if one wants to ignore a lot of tags (or more common tags).
