I'm going to make mine the boxcar no no no speech bubble I think

A fantastic idea. I have been too lazy to set up the new killfile so far though.

Nicole, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 22:23 (fourteen years ago) link

i had some trouble earlier today because i had 8080 in the url and that's changed.

anyway, place this snippet before the for loop for a nice little reminder in top right that some messages were blocked

if (posts.snapshotLength != 0) {
var logo = document.createElement("div");
logo.innerHTML = '<div style="position:fixed; top:0; right:0; left=auto; z-index:10; background-color:red; color:white; font-size:10pt; font-weight:bold;">Some Posts Were Blocked</div>';
document.body.insertBefore(logo, document.body.firstChild);

(jaq, got email, thanks. most of credit goes to will for the original, i only fixed it for ilx2 (my first greasemonkey script as it happens))

I'm dying to know who is killing whom. I challenge you to create a little PacManesque critter that gobbles up the posts of those you deem killable.

another one, this one makes the Skipping x messages a lot bigger and redder:

// ==UserScript==
// @name Skipping
// @namespace
// @description A Bigger Skipping Message
// @include*
// ==/UserScript==

skipping = document.evaluate("//div/form/p[starts-with(a, 'Skipping ')]",

// get paragraph, set colours
p = skipping.snapshotItem(0) = 'center'; = 'red'; = 'bolder'; = 'normal'; = '15px';

Thanks, Tom. Thanks Koogs!

cheers koogs, I still owe you a pint. And Will, you too wherever you are. I worked out how to convert the img src links to a href, but then realized if I open a thread with ton of pics it's still pulling them down so takes forever to load etc. A worthwhile exercise, I guess, but pointless.

Jaq, Saturday, 3 March 2007 17:26 (fourteen years ago) link

(oddly those last two changes don't work together - the first creates a div that seems to break the xpath in the second. maybe if i add the div at the end...)

yes, next thing was going to be modifying the 'Skipping...' message link to point to the exact message within the expanded page, save people having to find it again. unfortunately that needed some server code changes but, apparently, they were done before i even mentioned it. that keith may look dozy but he's actually quite on the ball. 8)

Potential killfile quirk alert - I don't seem to be able to block anyone whose username contains non-ANSI characters.

J, Friday, 16 March 2007 15:55 (fourteen years ago) link

i did wonder, only yesterday, if that would cause problems. i guess the problem is getting the characters into the javascript.

possible way around this is to turn the test into a 'starts-with' or a 'contains' so you can find parts of words without having to match the entire thing, for instance, and this is only an example, first thing that popped into my head, don't know why, 'ppppp dude'.

(of course, making it a substring makes it hard to then block anyone called, i don't know, 'J' 8)

koogs, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:15 (fourteen years ago) link

Now who would want to block lil' ol' me?

(Actually, I think TOMBOT has me blocked!)

J, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:21 (fourteen years ago) link

I have the name you used to spam stuff when you were mad about the existence of a bummerz thread blocked on my work computer!

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:26 (fourteen years ago) link

now that you keep registering new names I kind of feel like I am being challenged to block them all! like a fun game.

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:28 (fourteen years ago) link

That wasn't me! I have no idea how to do any of that stuff! I'm J McChump, and I've been posting here for years!

HI DERE, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:54 (fourteen years ago) link

I am seeing the wonderful possibilities for killfile faux pas lolz.

(alright a little funny)

J, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:59 (fourteen years ago) link

I want my own thread dedicated to times I put my foot really far down my throat.

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 17:00 (fourteen years ago) link

BTW Koogs, forgot to tell you that Skipping script is GREBT.

J, Saturday, 17 March 2007 19:19 (fourteen years ago) link

awesome, koogs, thx for making it work nu-style

i am dum, how do i shot?

strgn, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 03:30 (fourteen years ago) link

was thinking of redoing this just last night. gimme a couple of hours...

in the meantime you need firefox and its greasemonkey extension thing...

koogs, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 08:20 (fourteen years ago) link

ok, new version:

this now uses regular expressions so you can match against just a bit of the username - change the values on line 15.

koogs, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 09:52 (fourteen years ago) link

awesome!!!!!!!!!! thank you thank you thank you

if you killfile someone, do you killfile the titles of threads they start in addition to posts they make or only their posts?

gabbneb, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 14:58 (fourteen years ago) link

only their posts (inc the opening post of a thread they start)

blueski, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 15:01 (fourteen years ago) link

[xpost] Only their posts. The script could be changed to kill the thread titles too, I think.

Jaq, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 15:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Revive for Louis Jagger's return.

caek, Wednesday, 16 May 2007 01:16 (fourteen years ago) link

o hai this doesn't seem to work on v2.2. a little help?

blueski, Monday, 21 May 2007 14:19 (fourteen years ago) link

curse them for changing stuff. will look into it.

koogs, Monday, 21 May 2007 14:30 (fourteen years ago) link

done. there's a new P around the status line which means everything is one level deeper, that was the problem.

koogs, Monday, 21 May 2007 14:40 (fourteen years ago) link


blueski, Monday, 21 May 2007 15:06 (fourteen years ago) link

koogs, that's excellent, thanks!

Jaq, Monday, 21 May 2007 18:07 (fourteen years ago) link

howto link no worky :-(

StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 18:12 (fourteen years ago) link

How to:
1) install Firefox
2) install Greasemonkey extension
3) click on koog's link above and install the script
4) right click on smiley monkey face at lower right of FF
5) choose to Manage User Scripts
6) select kilxor and click Edit button - should open script with notepad
7) add user names to the line (inside the square brackets, using the info in the comments of the script): var fules = [ /Jaq/ ];
8) Save file
9) Make sure Enabled box is ticked. Click okay to close Greasemonkey manager dialog.

Jaq, Monday, 21 May 2007 18:34 (fourteen years ago) link


StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 19:28 (fourteen years ago) link

works fine, except, how exactly do I shot more than one user?

StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 19:57 (fourteen years ago) link

You have to pick the one you hate the most.

Ms Misery, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:04 (fourteen years ago) link


StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:06 (fourteen years ago) link


StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:06 (fourteen years ago) link

then why you want to kill them?

Ms Misery, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:23 (fourteen years ago) link

(I meant: nobody replies to my question? - and then ;-) )

StanM, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:24 (fourteen years ago) link

Like this:

var fules = [/Leee/,/Leee's Ugly Face/];

two weeks pass...

We should come up with one that lets you killfile certain boards' thread from showing up in Site New Answers! I could read everything else and leave out ILM without having to click anything besides refresh!!

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 6 June 2007 17:50 (fourteen years ago) link

I think that's doable - parse on class="thread" and remove where there's a match from your kill array. Don't know if I have time to play with it today myself though.

Jaq, Wednesday, 6 June 2007 17:57 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah I definitely don't that's why I posted the idea here hoping perhaps koogs or somebody was bored

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 6 June 2007 18:12 (fourteen years ago) link

Could board bookmarks also be added into this? Not exactly Killfile-related, though.

Leee, Wednesday, 6 June 2007 18:46 (fourteen years ago) link

i know nothing about site new answers. oh, there. looks easy enough but i doubt i'll have the time for a while. will see.

koogs, Wednesday, 6 June 2007 18:54 (fourteen years ago) link

first draft. blanks divs rather than deleting them, board numbers are strings. will tidy up when i have time.

koogs, Thursday, 7 June 2007 17:13 (fourteen years ago) link

ok, unwanted DIVs now set to not display.

also, choice of a blacklist or a whitelist, set WANT or DO_NOT_WANT as appropriate. see examples in code.

koogs, Friday, 8 June 2007 13:43 (fourteen years ago) link

if you want to make a name for yourself as a poster, killfile EVERYONE. then just go into threads with appealing that interest you and speak your mind.

no context. no discursive triangulation. just posting. pure posting.

Pretty much. Killfile is for the 1%.

I gave up on killfile and do my best to practice it mentally these days

wait I still have "Nerdstrom Poindexter" killfiled I believe

new snatk script - site new answers thread killer

unfortunately, threads are numbered per-board, so you need to supply the boardid as well as the threadid. i also had to take care of the 'updated' threads, which have an extra css attribute. but generally the structure of a thread link is easier than a post so code is shorter.

it *might* work in places other than Site New Answers. let's see...

yes. also works in 'new answers' (ie board view) - go to HTML Playground to test.

thanks, this works well!

six months pass...

how do I killfile someone with a forward-slash in their username? it screws up the coding, is there a code sequence I can encase that slash in?

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Friday, 19 February 2021 01:39 (nine months ago) link

I know you can killfile either display name (the one in parentheses or the one not) so maybe just killfile their other name?

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Friday, 19 February 2021 01:46 (nine months ago) link

yep, thanks

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Friday, 19 February 2021 01:53 (nine months ago) link

well that narrows down the possibilities

oops I don’t know what I did, but always happy to get killfiled again

so handy to have Zing to do the bookmarks here for when you need to move past posters who (literally) shit up the entire board and make it unreadable b/c they confuse ILX with their therapist or a blog

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Friday, 19 February 2021 03:10 (nine months ago) link

fuck off and die.

god it is so nice to not have to read what you post, I swore Killfile off for a while but some of y'all have been seriously fucking unbearable lately

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Friday, 19 February 2021 03:14 (nine months ago) link

has anyone encountered any negative side effects from using Greasemonkey? I'm considering setting up my first (and hopefully only) killfile but I'm not sure if it's worth it

It's always worked great for me

Piven After Midnight (The Yellow Kid), Saturday, 31 July 2021 14:13 (four months ago) link

it'll only run scripts that you install and then only on URLs you define within the script.
