Maybe instead of asking Ancestry to implement another ridiculous "improvement" or "enhancement" we should all ask, beg, scream, demand, etc that they implement something useful.
For example, why can't we select multiple hint items to ignore? It seems like that would be a more useful update. Yes, the offending (to some) clip art would still be there, but, it would be less annoying if you could get rid of it in an expeditious manner.
I couldn't care less what people upload to their trees. But, please for the love of god, upload it once and link it to other in the same tree.
