Script that explains new favorites on old things February 7, 2010 12:23 PM   Subscribe

Is there a greasemonkey script that lets us see why old comments have been favorited?

Sometimes I get a handful of new favorites on an old comment and am curious as to why.

I remember reference to a script that would explain if an old comment (or the post it's within) has recently been linked to. I can't seem to find it - any help?

Nope, but there's an iPhone app.

Why? Isn't that a bit empheral? I favorite based on voices in my head; how will a script tell you that?

It will use the listening devices we implanted in your head the last time you fell asleep. But I've said too much.

Best I can do is a one-liner for pseudo-conditional love:

if(1) { hugs(); }

Why, with that and a maudlin tagline (e.g. "Optimizing away the constant conditionals around your heart") I think you could make a geeky valentines card.

is there a greasemonkey script that will automagically adjust my tinfoil hat when I hear the voices in blue_beetle's head?

Be classy in the way you turn her down, and there has been lots of good advice about that. But don't feel guilty. The "I'm heavy, is that a problem?" thing is a game she played with you because of her own insecurity and that is not your fault.

WTF? If she was into game playing and dishonesty she wouldn't have said a thing about being heavy. You don't need to try and talk the OP into coming up with a reason to blame this woman for his feelings; it's perfectly okay to not be romantically attracted to people for any reason whatsoever. Making it the other person's fault is just plain weird.

OP, as has been said above, just say what you would say to anyone you're not romantically interested in (I had a enjoyable time but not feeling the spark or whatever). This is going to continue to happen all your dating life, so you might as well get used to it.

Plus she might not be that interested in you, if she hasn't contacted you yet.

Are they telling you this embarrassing internet moment is your own fault for reading Metafilter and not your writing research paper on Mid-Century California Gardens? Because that's what they are telling me.

*grabs toodleydooley* Well, you don't normally look the type, but grab the bunny ears and the listerine and let's roll.

Whew, good thing I'm not the real Whelk, then you'd be in for it.

I'd delete it but there's not really much else going on in here and the strident non-sequitur is kind of charming.

strident non-sequitur is totally my next character alignment.

So far, most of the Superbowl ads are really really stupid. Still. Geaux Saints.

one time as an adult I realized I could eat a whole bag of Doritos and no one would stop me so I did but half-way through I felt sick and greasy and my lips burned cause of all the salt so that's what those commercials make me feel.

No, but there's a Mac app for that.

Just push through that; a world of flavor awaits you!

There is a greasemonkey script that removes unconditional love. Is that good enough?

*turns on device, carefully adjusts antenna, twiddles appropriate knobs...*

Now, this won't hurt a bit.

*inserts voices into blue_beetle's head*

Amazing what you can do with the shit you buy from American Science and Surplus nowadays.

This script seems only to work for posts, not for comments.

Sorry I'm late, I've been in a Doritos coma for the past couple of days.

Surely you mean buried alive in a Doritos Tomb?

Oh, that's why it's been so quiet. I almost took off my tinfoil hat.

You may need it if you're gonna stick around in MeTa much longer.
