Blogger edit (and permanently delete) comments user script

I'm back from a rainy holiday. First thing I wanted to do when I was back home was improving the Blogger edit comments user script (original post). It had a few quirks and I wanted to be able to quickly and permanently delete unrelated comments. Here's the change list:

  • Removed Blogger's onclick which caused an extra window to be opened.
  • Corrected the title for the edit link.
  • Added a link to quickly and permanently delete comments.

I tried this with GreaseMonkey 0.5.1 final, and got no change at all on the Edit posts page. However, I tweaked it a bit, removing the, (superfluous, I believe -- the code isn't invoked until the page is loaded, AFAIK), encasing window.addEventListener('load', function(){ ... bit, and then it worked beautifully.

(My tweaked version is available at http://www.lysator.liu.se/~jhs/userscript/www.blogger.com/comments-editor.user.js but you probably want to just apply the fix to your own version, since I ruined your indentation, reading through the code.)

Nice hack.

I have been away for a few days. I'll take a look at the problems in Greasemonkey 0.5.1 tonight.
The onload was needed in some scripts I wrote to prevent Firefox from crashing... grmbl
