In the "Just for You" section of Fluther, what is the difference between "remove" and "not interested"?

Asked by essieness (7693points) April 1st, 2009

I get nervous about clicking one or the other and messing something up.

Remove, takes it away without changing anything. Just removes it.
Not interested teaches Fluther what you don’t like and changes what you get in the future.

Yes, but how does it affect what you get in the future if you say not interested?

It remembers what you don’t like, and adds it to the pile of maybe s/he wouldn’t like a very similar question. The more you use Just For You and answer questions, the more it learns.

That’s how I understood it anyway.
Obviously, the specifics are far more complicated and nerdy than that.

@daloon – Something to do with the keywords associated with the Q and with your profile, I imagine.

I’d like to know exactly how it works, because I’m afraid to use it, lest it get rid of questions I want to see.

I used “not interested” on a relgious question, and now I don’t get them anymore (yay!) I usually remove things, if I want to look at them later or don’t have anything to add.
