Kevin Drum Pie Filter

Latest update: November 16, 2015. Filter version 1.00

If this stops working, let me know.

To use this, you’ll need Greasemonkey:

I’m not sure if other browsers have GM support or not. Consult your local geek.

I’ve only tested this with Firefox. There are problems with Chrome. Haven’t figured them out yet.

You can download the pie filter, here.

This might work on other MoJo author pages. You’ll probably need to add them to the ‘include’ list.

Usage:
Install it.

Then, whenever you load a Kevin Drum article page, you will see three buttons at the end of the comments: “Add”, “Remove” and “Show List”. There’s also a text box where you will enter the name of the person to be filtered (or removed from the filter).

  • Add : To filter a user, enter the user’s name in the text box, and click this. From then on, comments from that user, and any other user you’ve added, will be pie’d.
  • Remove : To remove a user from your list of pie’d users, enter the user’s name and click this.
  • Show List : To see the names you currently have in your pie filter, click this.

If GreaseMonkey asks you to grant permission to use GM_setValue, GM_getValue and/or GM_xmlhttpRequest, grant that permission. The script can’t do anything without these functions!
