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!

most of credit goes to will for the original

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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:55 (thirteen years ago) link

(alright a little funny)

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

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

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

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

one month passes...
i am dum, how do i shot?

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

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

strgn, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 22:14 (thirteen years ago) link

four weeks pass...
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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

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

Revive for Louis Jagger's return.

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

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

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

curse them for changing stuff. will look into it.

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


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

koogs, that's excellent, thanks!

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

howto link no worky :-(

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


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

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

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

You have to pick the one you hate the most.

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


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


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

then why you want to kill them?

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

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

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

Like this:

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

Leee, Monday, 21 May 2007 20:42 (thirteen years ago) link


StanM, Tuesday, 22 May 2007 06:01 (thirteen years ago) link

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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen 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 (thirteen years ago) link

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

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


blueski, Friday, 8 June 2007 13:46 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh my god how could I have been posting here for six fucking years and never have ever clicked on "site new answers"? I AM SO DUM

J, Friday, 8 June 2007 15:35 (thirteen years ago) link

how do you killfile

gbx, Wednesday, 12 September 2018 18:12 (one year ago) link

why is this thread bumped with no posts

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Thursday, 20 September 2018 15:11 (one year ago) link

some firefox-specific help:

install greasemonkey for your browser

save the file from here:

change line 17 to include the people you want to exclude

then open it in your browser and it should prompt you to add it as a user script

i'll add this to a readme, sometime.

koogs, Thursday, 20 September 2018 15:25 (one year ago) link

how do you separate multiple usernames in line 17 again?

sleeve, Thursday, 20 September 2018 15:26 (one year ago) link

there are two in the example for just this reason 8)

var fules = [/noob/, /luser_name_here/];

comma separated, patterns surrounded by slashes...

(and those are regexp patterns, so if youre feeling brave then things like / should match 'koogs' etc)

koogs, Thursday, 20 September 2018 15:47 (one year ago) link

How can I find out who killfiled me and get back at them? Didn’t see it in the FAQ

Trϵϵship, Thursday, 20 September 2018 15:50 (one year ago) link

urgent and key

there’s still no way of hiding a single user on a specific thread, is there

Sing The Mighty Beat (sic), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 08:59 (one year ago) link

the urls at the top don't have to be site-specific, they could be thread-specific...

koogs, Wednesday, 14 November 2018 09:27 (one year ago) link

hmm! wld have to install a new one every month, but...

(there’s still no killfile on zing, right?)

Sing The Mighty Beat (sic), Wednesday, 14 November 2018 09:32 (one year ago) link

you can block a poster but not thread specific

badg, Wednesday, 14 November 2018 14:03 (one year ago) link

Trying to get this to work on Tampermonkey and Pastebin to no avail.

var fules = [/Morb/,/some_losers_username_here/];

Other than the second half with the person you want to block, do you need to change anything else? Don't really know what I'm doing lol

PaulTMA, Thursday, 22 November 2018 12:39 (one year ago) link

> Other than the second half with the person you want to block, do you need to change anything else?

that should be enough

> Tampermonkey

this is untested though

koogs, Thursday, 22 November 2018 13:31 (one year ago) link

I have not yet gotten it to work with tampermonkey :(

L'assie (Euler), Thursday, 22 November 2018 14:32 (one year ago) link

i have just gotten it working with tampermonkey

install tampermonkey, then go here:

click on "Raw" and it might, if you're lucky, open in a tampermonkey user script editor, change the 'fules' on line 17, ignore the warnings and errors, file, save, profit.

koogs, Thursday, 22 November 2018 16:55 (one year ago) link

^ that was macos chrome, v70.0.3538.102
