Introduce 'ListView' as an option in 'Metadata filter' tab
When navigating to the 'Metadata filter' tab to select filters, there are currently 122 options, however 'List View' is not one of them.
When navigating 'Metadata Types & Components' in Workbench, 'ListView' is described independently, and I have used it previously when deploying via ANT. Therefore I would imagine there is a way to identify List Views independently of 'Custom Objects'.
This would be a huge help with a Production monitoring job, as I do not mind if List Views are updated by certain users in Production, but currently they are flagged as differences. Basically, I want to ignore them in my monitoring job.
This is now released, you will need to update the metadata filter for any jobs set up already to take effect.
You can now exclude list views as well as other subcomponents of custom object.
(Note: named items is not populated for subcomponent metadata types.)

We are hitting below error in a CI job, and we want to not capture any list view in the CI process, but they cannot be filtered as they are part of custom objects. Could you please split the custom object sections so that we can filter unnecessary changes going through CI and avoid below errors.

We have similar requirement of list views exclusion from deployment. Our users create list views across environments, and we want to maintain List Views for specific environment, but not override through metadata deployments. Please Gearset help to get separate "List Views" metadata filter/selection option. Thanks!

This would be great for monitoring jobs as any "false" positives just create noise and make you trust the notifications less.
We allow certain users to edit list views so they do get edited in production and clutter the monitoring job from alerting us to changes we control.
Adam Dry commented
Our manager Users change the List Views daily as they act as a "to do list" for their sales guys. This means I have to manually check our comparison job everyday.
We can't emit custom objects altogether as creating/changing custom objects and fields is probably the most important change we want to monitor.

We would love to see this, too. I'm guessing if it was possible to do the regex filtering for filters (and not just the comparison view) we could achieve this, right?
(this also includes the filters for change monitoring!)
ListViews are included with CustomObjects so you currently can only get both in Gearset.
Can exclude seeing them from the results metadata type column if you use the filter.
Alternatively, you can also you regex filtering in Gearset to hide them. You can find out more from: https://gearset.com/blog/better-salesforce-metadata-filtering
I want to ignore List Views in my deployments and it doesn't appear there is anyway to do that currently. As it appears to be a separate metadata type in Salesforce, is this just an omission or was it purposely left out for some reason?
