Greasemonkey Digg Filter
Looking at the image kicking off this article, you might not even understand what you're seeing. At least, I hope so. I tried to integrate it well. So what are you seeing? The image is a screen capture of the logo area of the Digg home page... but there's something added – a keyword filter, to the right of the logo.
What's a keyword filter?
In this case, it kills articles for you, on the Digg site. For example, say you wanted to see political articles, but you just couldn't stand one of the candidates running for office. OK. Enter that candidate's name into the filter text area, and click the filter button. Now you'll see all the news except for items about that one candidate. You can enter a lot of keywords, each one separated by a comma.
How does it work?
Case-insensitive, phrases OK. Note that it searches the entire story area for your matches. What this means is that if you filter out text that appears with every article – for example, the word "digg" or the word "bury" – then you'll see no articles at all. It also means that you can filter out submitter names. So be careful with your filters.
Also, note that it does not refresh or alter the page when you select the "filter" button. Using that button merely saves your selected keywords. It may appear that it didn't do anything at all. But if you reload the page, you'll see the articles you dislike are gone.
Where can I get it?
As with all my other Greasemonkey scripts, I'll also put it on userscripts.org.
