Is there a way to remove a post from the My Favorites tab in Recent Activity while keeping the post as a favorite?

Thanks Alison, I should have been more clear! I am wondering if there is a way to remove a post from "Recent Activity on My Favorite Posts" without actually removing the post from my favorites.

That would be silly.

Yeah, I don't think there is, lalex.

You're not trying hard enough. Have you asked Plutor for a greasemonkey script? Have you added a section to the wiki indicating that this functionality used to exist, but now doesn't, thereby fooling pb into adding it back? Have you offered large sums of money to an admin to get this implemented? Have you threated to write your own open-source version of MeFi with this implemented? Have you made any death threats, utterances, or general nastiness to the mefi population in general?


I think you're just too nice.

I think the BoingBoing thread is throwing this feature off right now. That thread is always at the top of Recent Activity on My Favorites, though I always get a kick out of it so I don't mind. But that thread is about to close to new comments (no!) in a day or two, and without new comments it won't show up there anymore. Beyond extremely long-running threads that veer terribly off course, I think favorites in Recent Activity works fine as is.
