Today while browsing through questions i observed something rather peculiar: enter image description here

The screenshot explains it.As you can see themiddle question has sort of become blurred .I notice that this happens to a heavily downvoted answer but this is something I am seeing for the first time in a question!(not to mention this has one upvote which I guess is trivial in this case).

Are many users seeing this problem or is it just me?and what could be the reason?

    $\begingroup$ Did you choose to ignore either tag in the middle question? Check your profile page, click on the tab "Edit Profile and Settings", and from there, on the left hand panel, you'll see "Tag watching and ignoring". Click on it. You'll see a list of any tags you're watching, and any that you are ignoring. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I ignore the tag numerical-methods, so whenever such questions appear on the main page, they are "greyed out" just as your screen shot shows. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No need to delete the question. It happens often enough that the fade out confuses users. $\endgroup$
