I did a quick search to see if white list or whitelist existed in the topics here already and didn't see any. Basically, I want a white list feature as well. For example, I block #ych because I hate seeing them, but I also have the word "complete" white listed so thaif someone posts a YCH Completed thing, I can still see it. This can be used for other things other than just YCH related stuff, of course.
Basically I'm suggesting that if there is a tag you white listed in the item that contains a blacklisted tag, show it anyway. Users should not white list something generic however. If someone blacklists #diaper, then they shouldn't also whitelist some generic tag that might make that black listed tag useless.
In an example, I'd ask users who do the whole FA YCH crap here, to tag completed YCHs as #completedych, or something similar, and I'd whitelist that. The only example I can think of really, the FA script I use checks titles, not tags.
