I'm curious why some questions appear as grayed out, even though they are not [on hold]. Refer to screenshot below. I'd appreciate if someone could enlighten me.
When you ignore tags, they they appear as greyed out. I use this feature to highlight
salesforce-crm tags, which I try to remove as they come in.
You can access it from the home page by clicking the edit link next to Favorite Tags.
Once you expand that menu, you can see an Ignored Tags section.
Notice the set tag preferences link. If you follow it, you will find that you can actually choose to completely hide ignored posts instead of greying them out.
