Iain’s user scripts and Juggle Junction spam filter
“User-scripts” change the behavior of websites. In particular: jugglejunction.user.js filters spam from Juggle Junction’s interface to rec.juggling. I have written other scripts too, but the instructions below assume you want the spam filter.
Other browsers: The following page lists ways to install user-scripts for several web-browsers: wikipedia guide.
Screenshots / Demo
Here is what jugglingdb.com/news used to look like with the script:
Clicking any of the “Hide” checkboxes in the right-most column will make that row disappear (just for you). Clicking the “Show Hidden” link shows everything that has been hidden:
Most spam (shown in red) is hidden automatically. Threads that were manually hidden (for the local browser only) are shown in green. All these colored threads will be hidden again on a page refresh or on clicking “Hide Hidden”. If you don’t want a thread to be hidden in future, simply uncheck its box in the right column.
I update the spam heuristics every so often. Click the update link to get the latest version. False positives are pretty rare, but you can now unhide the threads yourself (they’ll stay red to alert you to the fact that the filter would otherwise hide them).
