It is what you make it. All about control for the user. I'm a believer in personal filters, but to each, their own.

How do I edit the names in the list as supplied by you?

I have added none yet.

I did have an earlier "LEB killfile" file in greasemonkey already, which I nuked.

thanks

Dipper,

There is no default list. To add a user to the kill file, click on the (x) next to the user name in the forum index view, or in the thread pages, click the "block user" link. See the screenshots in my post from yesterday (or at the wiki for the repository).

What would be nice is a kill thread file in addition to the kill user file.

Terrific idea. Why would anyone want to talk to people who didn't want to listen?

Just trying to add functionality to the forum that usenet clients had 20 years ago Werner ;-)

LOL!! So true...

Is there a simple way to block threads without necessarily blocking its author?

^^^^^^^

If person A knew that person B did not want to listen or hear person A, then why would person A attempt to talk to person B conversationally? What is the point.

A killfile seems to provide a solution to avoid that problem. It seems to serve both people.

Ok?

Just updated the script, the major new feature is thread blocking:



Blocking a thread only blocks that thread, not any other threads created by that author.

Blocked threads and authors are now stored in HTML5 local storage which is now the recommended practice for userscript preferences. This means that any kill filed authors will have to be re-added. Sorry about that, but this should be the last change in that department.

In addition, the script is now versioned so Greasemonkey should pick up new versions automatically from here on out.

I also injected some styles into the thread pages that prevent extra-large images, long urls, or 500 exclamation points in a row from blowing out the pages.

Main forum index page now gets "re-striped" after killed threads are removed so that there's always alternating row colors.

Note that since I switched to using HTML5 localstorage for saving the killfiled users/threads so the previous instructions about clearing the killfile are obsolete. I'll put some new instructions for that up on the wiki later. If you have a need to do that before I manage to update the instructions, drop me a line and I'll walk you through it.

Instructions here, and you can install the latest version directly from this link.

If you find any bugs or have suggestions, drop me a PM here or create an issue at bitbucket. Code contributions always welcome - create a pull request.

Cheers,

If you block yourself, do you have to hang out with Schrodinger's cat?

Anybody who downloads this should think about why they are such pussies, and can't function in society.

I downloaded the killfile; but I don't think of myself as a "pussy". I think of myself as someone who doesn't like to read trash or someone who doesn't want to see the same old dead horse beaten to death with photoshop.

Ironically I use for the same reason you say not to use it biotech, to block those who seemingly don't function well in society or at the very least this society.

It is no different than muting the television during commercials; except you don't have to hit the mute button.

Anyone who is against the ability to block trolls is most likely a troll, and thus gets blocked.

Works only with Firefox?

Then can I block myself for a specific period of time?

Should work as well in Google Chrome, but I have not tested it.

I added some the instructions to the wiki to view/edit the stored killfile values.

[16:12:37.821] ReferenceError: localstorage is not defined

Also did a reboot due to something else entirely and lost the previously marked thread filter. Had to go back and re-add them. Clearly this setup is more finicky to user settings etc.

DMT,

You did have a supertopo page open in the front-most window-tab when you did that (Firefox console?), yes?
