- install the greasemonkey addon in firefox
- add the userscript in this post by koogs
- edit the script by replacing /fule1/ by the poster you wish to get rid of, e.g. /StanM/ and save the script
- make sure greasemonkey is enabled, refresh the page if necessary or close/restart firefox
- ?

StanM, Monday, 30 May 2011 19:32 (nine years ago) link

hooray! it works!

Thanks

I'm not using it anymore, though, it's not ideal. I found myself disabling it to see what people were replying to all the time.

StanM, Monday, 30 May 2011 20:18 (nine years ago) link

it's not as if you can't see that they posted, you just see theier name and then "post deleted", so it does kinda make you wanna know what they said even though you killfiled em.

lolford brimley (Neanderthal), Monday, 30 May 2011 20:46 (nine years ago) link

It stopped working for me at some point, or worked intermittently (posts would get through) but eventually the poster(s) in question finally chilled the hell out and cut down their posting so I could through a day's posts without stupid instigations popping up

It can be pretty annoying when lots of people are using their display names to reference somebody I've killfiled though...

Godzilla vs. Rodan Rodannadanna (The Yellow Kid), Saturday, 9 July 2011 07:29 (nine years ago) link

that last can be handled by tightening up the pattern that you're matching against - just including the ()s should restrict it enough (although you may have to escape them with \ (maybe \\) beforehand as ( and ) are part of regexp syntax)

koogs, Saturday, 9 July 2011 08:50 (nine years ago) link

wouldn't be impossible to replace the deleted sections with a div that was just hidden rather than deleted and a link to unhide the text

Trying this for the first time now but I can't get it to work. Clicking "edit this user script" in options just doesn't do anything.

On a mac here. Could I manually open the .js file and edit in texteditor before I install it?

Y Kant Lou Reed (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 21 October 2011 11:38 (nine years ago) link

To answer my own question: yes, that works too. Great!

Y Kant Lou Reed (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 21 October 2011 11:46 (nine years ago) link

yeah, the 'edit this script' button just opens the editor you've defined (and i'm guessing the problem is that you haven't defined an editor and the default is missing)

koogs, Friday, 21 October 2011 12:18 (nine years ago) link

itt no names no credibility

nakhchivan, Friday, 21 October 2011 12:20 (nine years ago) link

who updated this thread?

dayo, Friday, 21 October 2011 12:21 (nine years ago) link

Koogs, that indeed was it (no defined editor, or wrongly defined, and can't seem to change that now), but I did it manually and it works like a charm, cheers!

People who use this, is that true? I don't want to go through the trouble of enabling this if that's the case. Please to confirm or deny this thank you in advance.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 01:33 (nine years ago) link

the 'post deleted' bit is true, the latter bit definitely not, otherwise why bother killfiling em

some crap (electricsound), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 01:34 (nine years ago) link

You mean the part about it making you want to know what they said? lol. It still seems weird to me that you'd see their usename and "post deleted" but good to know in any event. Ta!

wolf kabob (ENBB), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 01:36 (nine years ago) link

the substitution replaces the text of what the person posted, not so much the entire post

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Tuesday, 13 March 2012 02:30 (nine years ago) link

this line is responsible for the message, just change it


div.innerHTML = "<div>Post by " + poster + " deleted<br /><hr/></div>";

to, perhaps,


div.innerHTML = "<div>Post deleted<br /><hr/></div>";

don't think you can remove all the evidence - even if you make the div empty the horizontal lines will still be there so you'll still know something is missing.
