  1. Follow a tag describing something you don't actually want to follow, like the #javascript tag (trust me please),

  2. Click on the not-so cranked wheel to go to the page that handles the weights of your tags (here's the link:,

  3. Set the weight of the tag you didn't like to -999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 or something like this,
