I can not find an API method method that would provide me with a set of favorite/ignored tags for a given user. Is there such a method? If not, is there a recommended way to get this information?

No, the API does not provide a method to get the user's question-page, display preferences -- including Favorite or Ignored tags.

Currently, the only way for your app to get these is to browse to the questions list and scrape the tags from the right-hand column.

If your app is running in the user's browser and the user is logged-in, this is a piece of cake.

Otherwise, your app must somehow obtain the user's login credentials, which most users would be justifiably unwilling to provide.

Thanks, I'll just let user paste tag list then. – Andrey Shchekin Jun 17 '13 at 5:45
