FFS stop showing me Hot thisandthat
, Feature blahblahblah
, Recommended algorithmicjunk
Because FFS when I ridicule Christianity
at Ted Cruz
, lambaste Libertarians
, parody Fox
, etc. , this should not be taken as a sign I want recommendations supporting that RWNuttery.
And it's worse, much worse, because Recommended algorithmicjunk
fails especially hard when I am subtle, ironic, sardonic, or revel in Poe's Law.
The heuristic you're using to measure your algorithmic suggestions is too crude - still.

Aside from that, the banality of your other suggestions for me is beyond irritating - people, real people, have hard time figuring out the common thread of my interests, and they have a hard time not irritating me with their sincere suggestions. Google algorithms are significantly worse.
It's like this. Once upon a time my aunt bought a giraffe figurine because she liked it. And then for 10 years everyone bought her giraffe figurines because everyone thought she really, really, really like them. In year 11 she finally told everyone to stop getting her giraffes because she didn't like them that
Or it's like this. A friend of mine bought a figurine of a cat, in a gaudy Mexican folk style. And so her friends bought her cat figurines. Or things that were gaudy. But they failed to noticed all the other Mexican folk art she had.
