In My questions page, I see the following:

As you can see, this question appears to be greyed out as if it has been deleted when it's evidently not deleted at all.

Why is it displaying that way?

EDIT: Ah sorry I just noticed that I had added as ignored tag a while back and had forgotten about it.

When I opened the community the question appeared that way. So new question is, Why is a question from an ignored tag showing up in my feed?

    Because all ignoring a tag does is make them greyed out. Not actually remove them.

Quoting from this Meta SE post:

Ignored Tags: Questions with these tags are shown faded; they are still visible but less prominent. Checking the "Hide Ignored Tags" box causes them to be hidden completely. (This is done by a client-side script however, so you may notice odd "gaps.")

So it appears I was mistaken about what the ignored tags do.
