Can I change how favorites are displayed for me? Can I hide them entirely?

Yes. You can change how favorites are displayed to you, throughout the site, by changing a setting in your Preferences.

The options are:
- Default - shows a number indicating how many favorites a comment has
- "Has Favorites" - only indicates if a comment has favorites or not, does not show a number. If you want to see the number for a given comment, you can reveal it by mousing-over the phrase "has favorites".
- "Hide Favorites" - does not display favorites to you at all (however, you can still use the Favorite feature)
