Marquee Killer

I am surprised that Ad Muncher doesn't have this option built in...

Anyway, I was in a web forum, and some idiot (sorry, I can't help myself here) decided that it would be cool to use the <marquee> tag in his huge signature. Have you ever encountered something that was so annoying, you couldn't believe how annoying it was? This was one of those things.

The solution is a simple "replace text" filter as follows:

Match text:
Code: Select all
<**marquee>

Replacement text:
Code: Select all
<*asshole>

I see it only very rarely--I just don't think it's used much.

I've heard of PopUp Cop, but I personally have always shunned one-browser-only applications like that.
