The Google Groups KillFile is a very simple, but useful script for those folk that use Google Groups to access Usenet. In normal client side newsreaders there is the concept of a killfile that allows you to filter out posts based on subject or author which allows you to cut through some of the noise. Unfortunately if you have to use a web based client, namely Google Groups this feature is sadly missing which is where the Google Groups KillFile GreaseMonkey script fits in. Once you install the script it will add a small X next to each authors name. If you click the X then you will no longer see any posts by that user.You will need the following..
If you are in the titles only view you will see an X next to the user’s name, clicking this places the author in the killfile. If you are in the other view with Message Text view you will see a link that says Ignore User, again clicking this places the user in the killfile.
At the top right there is a new menu option Kill File, that when clicked displays the current killfile where you can remove people you have previously placed on the list.
You should realise that if someone replies to the troll the message will no longer be blocked as the authors name will change. So as always don’t feed the trolls :)
Hope this proves useful; the usual it’s not my fault if it breaks disclaimer applies.
