Christopher Finke wrote a Firefox extension called YouTube Comment Snob that hides the 90% drivel which graces the comment area beneath your favorite videos. It’s basically a YouTube spam filter that allows you to optionally weed out comments based on characteristics like excessive (or lack of) capitalization, profanity, over-punctuation and a high incidence of spelling errors.

I’d be so stoked if someone took this idea and applied to blog comments in general. Just a quick glance at Slashdot, Drupal, Digg, Blogger, and Moveable Type shows that you can probably target a majority of sites by filtering through block-level elements beneath DIVs that have an id or class containing “comment”.
