Wow, that was worth a try!

So I used Adblock to block all the ads over at the Green Monster. Suddenly it's much greener. Can I actually use that to block certain users?

what browser are you using? I'm using Chrome and ad block doesn't work there. Maybe it's time for an update to both.

Ad-block works perfectly on Chrome. If you want to filter out the Magic Cafe ads, you'll need to manually add them. This is because the images and links are hosted on the Magic Cafe server directly (they don't come from Ad syndicates). Simply create a custom filter for Ad-block to get rid of the adverts.

I think it's not that hard to write a script to filter out certain users. I will see what I can do.

I actually like watching people on the Green Monster bicker with each other. It's like funny drama television but can be read through very quickly.

Have you been reading Thomas More again, Roland?

It'll do you no good in the long run.

well I made this script
download it if you want: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/171582

You need to use Greasemonkey add-on in Firefox or Tampermonkey extension in Chrome. After installing either of those, get the script above. You have to modify the name of lists in the script, their comments won't appear if you get in a thread on the café.
