I am collecting all my projects in one place, which is Github, so development continues there!
Block comments (Firefox addon)
User content is an indispensable part of the internet. Think of all the awesome Youtube videos. But on some occasions, the content is better without frustrated people with too much time spewing their wordy ignorance all over your screen. Think of Youtube 96.4% of all Youtube comments.
This comic describes it well: http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=759
Stil, it can be tempting to read it, and even reply. This addon is here to help you resist that urge, by simply hiding this wordy ignorance.
These things are blocked:
- Youtube: comments
- 9gag: comments
(This list might not be entirely up-to-date)
Any additional blocking rules are most welcome! The code is at https://bitbucket.org/mverleg/firefox_no_comments
