I want to be able to still read posts like “The Parable of Predictomatic” that are “Trying to explain rational concepts through fiction” rather than “Fiction that tries to model rational characters”.
You could downvote the fiction tag, which might mean only fiction passing a sufficiently good filter would appear.
Although I don’t think solutions like this fully solve the general problem of people being driven away if LW gets too full of fiction. For example, it doesn’t help not-logged-in readers (I think there are a lot of those?).
This also feels wrong because I don’t think the tag doesn’t apply, it’s just I don’t want to regularly be shown that type of fiction.
I mean downvote it in your feed, which makes it show up less frequently.
Do you mean picking a −10 or −25 weight in the tag filters?
