There's a way to remove the Fack, Andy spam. All you do is go into the HTML, select the comment, and delete it. You can either delete the entire comment or only the content of the comment. This will remove all the crap, including the styling and scripts which ruins the whole page. Problem with this is that it is only temporary. It may be useful to remove the post or reply to the thread, but it won't apply automatically everything. What we need is some script or something that automatically deletes the comment tag that has the name tag with Fack's name in it. If anyone around here has some javascript brains you can make a script to be inserted by Tampermonkey to remvoe the garbage.
 
This is the comment tag.If we remove that tag, the garbage is gone.Here is the content tag.If we remove that, it only removes the garbage but leaves the frame of the comment.But the problem with this seems to be that the Plexpedia bar disappears, and the comments after the Fack spam disappears. I posted a comment but it wouldn't show. I'm not sure about this though; it needs more testing.

It's not permanent... It only deletes it for that one time but it will reappear when you reload the page. It's useful though if you want to read the page or make, edit, or delete a comment without going to the watch site instead of marsxplr.com.

It's not worth it then.

Not for just casual viewing, but worth it to remove the damn spam (hey it rhymes). If someone can make a script to automatically do this every time then that would be great.
 
Luckily the Fack spam is rather rare... at least it's not like those spam bots that spam tens or hundreds of gibberish nonsensical spam per day. The first Unitycraft forum failed because of the spam (the forum was my idea) but later the owner tried again and it was a success.

I just managed to delete some spam on this page:

First I needed to disable javascript so I did that using the easy javascript switcher for chrome. Then I went in the html and deleted the content (not the entire comment, only the content) of each post, so the styling of the page goes back to normal so I could hide the posts. After I deleted the content the page loaded normally. I "middle-clicked" each "Hide" button (middle-click does open in new tab) because if I clicked one, it would reload the page and I would have to start over, so I middle-clicked and have it load in another tab.
 
So I got all the spam filtered, but there's a problem with this. The mod, who can see the hidden post, still has the post loaded on the page and the page screwed up, whereas the non-mods, who cannot see the hidden post, don't have it loaded on the page and therefore page not screwed up.
 
Go to the thread above and see if the spam is there or not.

The nice thing about the ATI systems versus other sites is that it doesn't complain when Javascript is off. That's probably because it is OLD and quite some browsers didn't have javascript enabled back then. But now pretty much ALL browsers have JS enabled and most computers are powerful enough to load heavy JS.
ATI is also fast for probably the same reason.
 
That's the nice thing about old software... it's really fast and light on new hardware (usually). It goes to Windows XP too.
 
How ironic... when software gets old it gets faster and better... whereas hardware does the opposite. HOWEVER old software often gets defunct.
