Hello Codeforces,

Today, after getting bored of sleeping, I decided to sharpen up my vim skills. So I opened the firefox, then developer tools, and set the 'keybindings' to 'vim style', and decided to write a user script. A user script that automatically downvotes the spammers.

If you are fed up of spammers as much as I am, then I invite you to use my user script. To install the user script in your browser, just follow these 2 instructions:

1. Install Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey

Choose your browser
Greasemonkey Tampermonkey

2. Install So spammer, much asshole!

Let Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey auto-install the user script

Who are those "spammers"?

Well, at the moment, there are only 6 people in the list of the spammers. But, these 6 people are (mostly) those that asked for downvotes in some particular comment/post. These people will be removed from this list after the real list of the spammers will be ready. That is why, I ask you to suggest spammers (with reasonable evidence alongside, of course). Thanks.

So here is the list of those 6 "spammers":

  1. c1one
  2. makkar
  3. mewat1000
  4. kursatbakis0
  5. ninjacoder
    • I like the personality of this guy, but his comments, they are, ...

    • To aradhya, I will not WASTE my time on a such miserable rat like you, but if you will continue punishing my Mother language you will not live long enough to regret it!!!
    • Mal bolsan name edeli biz? (Чё нам делать то, если ты баран?)

    • and lots of other comments that contain the f-word
  6. silap-aliyev
    • so that the above 5 guys won't be angry at me

We should be able to choose the users to downvote (in case this functionality isn't already included).

    The functionality you suggested is a really good one, and I should have thought about it, and added it before sharing the userscript.

    But, after struggling for a lot of time, I am now fed up with googling every once in a while.

    [longtext] I tried to store the list of spammers using Greasemonkey's GM_getValue/GM_setValue functions. But it turned out that using those functions puts the userscript into some kind of sandbox. And the sandbox prevented the ajax requests to be executed properly. I failed to find some workaround and decided to learn to write Firefox addons (and later, after having made a Firefox addon, I was planning to learn to write Chrome extenstions). While making the addon, I spent a lot of time to realize why my log messages were not appearing in the console. Before realizing why, I even tried blind-searching for the bugs. Now, I am stuck trying to get why, again, the ajax requests are not working. As I have been stuck for a lot of time, I want to give up, and do what I am supposed to do (study for IOI). [/longtext]

    [tl;dr] I tried hard, but, sorry, I failed to add the functionality. If someone else is interested in adding the functionality, I can share the not working Firefox addon. Just pm me.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Because that way, he gets minus too, and it is no different from saying give me minus.

It'd be much better if the script finds all the comments with too negative feedback in a page (those are mostly spam) and automatically down votes them when we run it. That'd save a lot of time and it won't have the problem of doenvoting any nice comments too.

the good idea would be to hide very negative contribution, so "i want -200 contribution seekers would not get what they want to"
