It's pretty simple. Checks if a commenter matches against a list of blacklisted IDs and removes the comment if it does.
If you feel like it, maybe you can update the blacklist or otherwise improve the extension:
Updated the list with more fedoras. Have to come up with a way to do this more easily. There's so many of them.
Made Firefox version too
Published a new version. The plugin now consumes less CPU. Actually it consumes no CPU after the comments are removed and no new comments loaded.
Chrome might ask you to accept additional permissions because I tweaked that also (basically you are allowing the plugin to modify comments section and read the blacklist from github).
You know what might piss them off? If you replied to their comment saying something like *Congratulations, you've been added to Hide Fedora browser extension blacklist.*
**NOW YOU CAN REPLACE FEDORAS WITH CAT PICTURES**
Added an options page where you can choose fedora comment removal method.
If you're impatient you can manually [update your chrome extensions](http://lifehacker.com/5805239/how-to-manually-update-your-chrome-extensions) to get the latest version. You will be asked to accept additional permissions to allow saving settings.
Major update. Fedora list is now fetched from an outside source.
You can now report reddit armie from the comments. Or you can hide the button from the options page.
It seems that the extension stops working if you log out of Chrome. Will try to fix this. In the meantime you can try logging back in.
Some users are reporting that the Chrome extension is not working even if they are logged in. [You can try resetting Chrome settings](https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3296214?hl=en).
YouTube changed comments HTML structure which caused the extension to stop working. Updated Chrome extension (new version is 1.7.3).
Chrome extension will ask you to accept new permissions (read and change your data on jhvisser.com and youtube.com). This is because YouTube comments are no longer inside an iframe. You can see all changes [here](https://github.com/hadalin/chrome-hidefedora/commit/b373120e353b037f8900ff736bdfabf118a21748) and discussion [here](https://github.com/hadalin/chrome-hidefedora/issues/53).
Updated Opera and Firefox extension to work with "new" YouTube.
