Overview

Hides most YouTube spam comments

Detects spam comments and automatically hides them, protecting its users from spoofers, adult content pushers, and other annoyances. If the add-on hides a comment you want to see, simply click the "Likely spam (+)" text and it will reveal the hidden comment (with the profile picture blurred just in case). Displaying the reason the comment was marked as spam can be disabled/enabled via the "spam reason labels" in the options menu. Release notes: (March 16, 2023) v2.2.1 - Fixed bug that caused some comments by the video author to be marked as spam after loading a second video by the same author ---- (March 12, 2023) v2.2.0 Critical update! This patches a bunch of feature-breaking issues related to changes in the YouTube site structure. In addition to these patches, the allowed sites list has been updated to match the latest data regarding the most visited sites. Technical: - Fixed bug that cause comments to get stuck verifying forever (never became visible) - Fixed bug that caused irrational behavior when switching between videos (YouTube's virtual routing system means the page doesn't reload during navigation) - Fixed bug that prevented automatic approval of pinned and hearted comments - Fixed bug that broke collapsing of comments flagged for bad content - Fixed several performance bugs related to scanning comments multiple times

this is a pretty good extension though there is the issue of creator comments getting flagged

Thank you for reporting this! That was a sneaky bug. I have just published a fix, it should come to a browser near you very soon :)

The only spam I see are chain threads with high thumbs ups. The phonies say some general things to , each other, then eventually get to saying a phone/telegram/email or whatever, spread across multiple posts to contact the person to donate your money to. I thought this would remove them but instead all it did was blurred almost the everyone's avatars.

I think the first issue you are referring to is one that's pretty insidious. Bots will use usernames and avatars designed to entice users into clicking through to their profiles, which inevitably have a link to at best an onlyfans, at worst an external site of unknown safety. I just pushed an update that will not fully hide comments unless they themselves have malicious content, and you'll be able to hover over the avatar and username to see why they were hidden. As for the issues with missing comments, there is always work to be done on the detection metrics. If you could email me some links to examples of the comments YTSR is missing at sami.pfjo@gmail.com I'll work on getting the filters added!

Hi! Profile pics should only be blurred if they are deemed NSFW or if they are trying to impersonate the video author. NSFW avatars are rampant on YouTube due to a method of spam where they copy a different comment and lure in users to check their profile, which inevitably contains an OnlyFans link or the like. Alongside "like" manipulation, this can lead to even fairly highly rated comments being marked as spam because, well, they are. If you've got a situation in which profile pictures are getting incorrectly flagged, please either email me about it at sami.pfjo@gmail.com or post the issue on the project's GitHub (the "project home" link) so I can get it fixed.
