Image from store Forum Troll Stomper
Description from store Comments on many tech forums often descend into an ill-mannered slanging match. Insults and ad-hominen attacks abound, with (no doubt overworked) forum admins seemingly unable to halt the abuse. So, I put together this extension together to block such trolls. And as one person's "troll" is another person's "heroic fighter for the good cause", you get to define who your particular list of trolls are. Think of this as an old-style email kill list, but for forums rather than for your inbox. New TrollPeak Feature! ==================== As of version 0.35. For those weak moments when you can't help yourself! TrollPeak allows you take a sneaky look at what the troll said, but without having to unblock him. Forum Troll Stomper currently works with the following forums: * zdnet.com * pcpro.co.uk * cnet.com I can adapt to work with other forums on request. Just let me know via the Feedback link. Developer note: the extension cannot block comments that load inside an iFrame. That's why I had to remove the ComputerWorld and PCPro options. Version 0.38, Dec 17, 2014 ================= * Fixes for ZDNet's switch to Fyre. * Fixed a CSS image size problem with Fyre. Version 0.37, Nov 26, 2014 ===================== * Fixed bug that disabled the extension on the ZDNet forums. Version 0.36, Nov 25, 2014 ===================== * Added New York (nymag.com) site. * Removed PCPro, who switched their comments to Disqus, running inside an iFrame. (They have fairly polite comments there, anyway!) Version 0.35, Oct 1, 2013 ===================== * Added TrollPeek feature. * Removed ComputerWorld site. (They switched their comments to Disqus, running inside an iFrame.) Version 0.32, Oct 1, 2013 ===================== * Added CNet and ComputerWorld sites. Version 0.31, Oct 1, 2013 ===================== * Removed unused 3rd options tab * Extract authors from within a href tags Version 0.30, Sept 29, 2013 ===================== * Added pcpro.co.uk forum. * Redesigned options as a separate page. This allows separate troll lists for multiple forums.

  • (2019-07-24, v:0.38) John Wilkinson: everycircuit.com - minor site
    Looking for a blocker for this site. It's very minor and I already have the key code in javascript but if you could use it or use your own code that would be super awesome. Don't expect you'd be interested but it's just a thought. Still looking :) Here's the script. <script> var myTds = document.getElementsByTagName("td"); var i; for (i = 0; i < myTds.length; i++) { var btn = myTds[i]; var x = btn.attributes[1].value; if (x=="YOUR_TROLL_HERE") { myTds[i].style.visibility = "hidden"; } else { myTds[i].style.visibility = "visible"; } } </script>

    A member on the phpBB3 forum missosology.info is harassing me and I'd like to block his comments on my threads. Could you add missosology.info to the extension or add support for phpBB3 forums in general? Thanks!
