Logic’s Last Stand

Programmable Restraint

A month or two back, I half-jokingly suggested a Firefox plugin to just completely remove the comments section from Youtube videos. For those who don’t know, Youtube hosts arguably the most unintelligible, bigoted, downright stupefying commentary of all the Internet. You can simply set the comments to be folded and you know, not view them. The problem is that I and I suspect many others are just accustomed to reading comments for things.

So, I did it. Being an Opera user, I used its website settings to add a custom stylesheet that makes the comments disappear altogether and any method for reading them, and I must say, the Youtube experience is much improved.

Silly as it is, having that extra layer of inconvenience preventing me from opening up the comments I know better than to read actually does the trick a mere self-imposition doesn’t provide.
