This is a Chrome extension designed to provide functionality like the usenet killfile to the comments sections of certain blogs. With it, readers can decide that they would rather never see comments from certain individuals, and hide those comments from view.
It is not intended as a replacement for comment moderation, but merely as a personal measure an individual reader can take for their own peace of mind.
This extension is a revival of code from an old greasemonkey script of mine, http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/4107. As such, some of the code may have suffered from bitrot in the meantime and needs retesting on all supported blogs.
Until I put this up on the chrome store, installation will either have to
be through cloning the git project and then loading an unpacked extension
chrome-killfile-extension subdirectory, or downloading the
killfile-extension.crx file from this project's releases and then
installing the extension locally.
Once the extension is installed, if you visit the comment page on a
blog where it works you'll see a logo in the browser bar telling you
that killfile is active and a hovering your mouse over a comment will
cause two links,
[hide comment] to appear near the name
of the commenter. Clicking
[kill] will hide that person's comments
from until you click the
[unkill] next to their name. (As with the
[kill] link, the
[unkill] link is hidden until you hover over the
notification that the comment is hidden)
Please report blogs where this should work but doesn't through the
normal github issue system. (That is, blogs where the killfile logo
shows up, but the comments don't have
[kill] links when you hover over
them). Report blogs that this extension doesn't yet support, but should,
through email to firstname.lastname@example.org
