Google Groups filtering

I like Google Groups a lot, but it's far from perfect. Of all its annoyances, the lack of a killfile (filter) is the biggest.

Fortunately there is a solution for those using Firefox:

1. Install Greasemonkey

2. Install Damian's Google Groups How to win back your ex

Killfile script

3. View one of the offending posts in Google Groups and click on Ignore User. Hooray, now I can finally read melb.general free of all those MI5 Persecution posts! (You can read all about that here, if you wish.)
