How to block people using Dahzel's magical Chrome extension

Link is thus - BlockAusgamersPosts

Install and a little icon will appear in the upper right of your browser in the form of a no entry sign. Click on that and in the users box type, let's say for example, FaceMan. Put whatever you want in the message box and all of that user's posts will be replaced with what you typed in there. Congratulations, your forum experience is now a lot less dumb.

I could only get it to work for one user but for now that's all I need. Perhaps Dahzel can chime in here and let us know how to block multiple users which I assume is possible because the box is labelled 'Users'.

My entire purpose on these forums is now to quote every post faceman makes. We should all do the same, then fpot will be left talking to himself.

I have no idea. It was sent to me by Hoggy in a pm and is now magically a viglink.

^ Just like that one. When you type things like Call of Duty they get changed too. It's really gay.

I think the screenshot dazhel originally posted show multiple users, he had them comma-separated in the users field

Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

I don't really get it either, I've never been so annoyed by a poster that I've felt the need to block them. People on MSN/FB/Steam friends who rub me the wrong way, yes, but never on a forum. I usually just don't read their posts.

Agreed. Whenever Faceman posts something crazy i just skip it and keep going as i either dont care or dont know what hes going on about. I dont see the difficulty in that.

I don't see how ignoring someone who you think is a real d*** is a childish action. This handy extension just makes it easier for me to ignore him.

Yeah Jim's right. That part of the UI is a bit finicky, you've gotta comma separate them with no extra spaces and it's case sensitive. It's a result of this thread, and it's a first Chrome extension so it's a bit rough around the edges.

I've never been annoyed at someone enough to block them either, including Faceman. For all of the comments you roll your eyes at, every now and then there's a genuinely funny or insightful comment in there. I can see how others do get riled up though. If there's fewer personality clashes maybe it'll will cut down on the number of thread derailments, but I'm skeptical on that one.

what did fpot say? I can't see his posts

sometimes i wish this forum had a voting function where enough negative votes deletes's the persons post.

then again, i might miss the chance at laughing at people's retarded posts.

I read all of facemans posts. He adds a interesting alternative view to alot of discussion which would usually be very immature and 'follow the sheep' like... +kiddie troll spam


Looking at this addin it looks like you just have to change your forum name to get around it (as it's not based off ID). Perhaps I should make an addin that changes your forum name slightly every post. Let the arms race begin!

why bother? you can choose not to read them. but then you may miss the context as skythra says.

i quite enjoy the ramblings of everyone on here. only person who ever pissed me off was door. every one else i can handle their unique points of view and i simply ignore the baiters and those who obviously have reading or comprehension problems and give inane responses without obviously having understood the thread.

but being different and having differing views is what makes the world go around and what having our freedom is based on isn't it?

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it. Voltaire
