    A quickie1.

    I like the revised Battle.net, and I do enjoy reading the various blogs, updates, patch notes that they post there. I very much don’t like reading the comments on the various blogs, updates and patch notes. I’m sure there are some excellent comments in there somewhere, filled with wit, insight and the sort of personality that makes you want to pay for a server transfer on the offchance you might meet up with the author on a floating rock in Nagrand. The problem is, these notional perfect comments are completely buried by the “Why duz Bliz hate <class>” idiots and their drooling, badly-written face-mashed-on-a-keyboard drivel.

    My problem is that if an article has comments, I’m seemingly powerless to stop myself reading them. Which then leaves me angry and depressed.

    Here’s my solution:

    // ==UserScript==
    // @name Battle.Net Comment Hide
    // @namespace http://www.mysteriousbuttons.com/
    // @include http://*.battle.net/wow/en/blog/*
    // ==/UserScript==

    var commentsSection = document.getElementById('page-comments');
    if (commentsSection) {
    commentsSection.parentNode.removeChild(commentsSection);
    }

    This works with Greasemonkey in Firefox (and presumably would work natively in Chrome) and neatly erases the entire comments section on battle.net blog pages before I have a chance to read them. Lovely.
