According to U.S. officials,┬áIran isn’t trying to build a nuclear weapon. ┬áEven if Iran did have a nuclear weapon, the government wouldn’t actually use it, as the retaliation would destroy their country. ┬áThat’s kind of obvious really.

And yet, the Iranian people are suffering under sanctions. ┬áI live in the UK, and my government wants to increase sanctions on Iran and cause “more pain on the streets”. ┬áMaybe the government of your country wants to do the same. ┬áMaybe our governments will launch a military attack on Iran in the future.

I’ve never been to Iran, but I hear there are 75 million people living there. ┬áPersonally, I don’t think it’s very nice to make people suffer, and I’m worried about them. ┬áSo I thought I’d search out some photos on the internet and feature them here, as a reminder that real people suffer when our governments do their “more pain on the streets” thing.

MLMB add-on v4

I’ve added some more features to the Media Lens Message Board Greasemonkey add-on script. ┬áSee the main add-on page for full info and installation details.

New features:

  • Read messages are automatically collapsed when viewing the full thread. ┬áDue to the way the board works, this only happens with messages that have been read on the full thread page, not ones read individually.
  • On the index page, the message count is highlighted when all messages have been read.
  • Also on the index page, a collapsed thread now shows the ‘View thread’ link, so you don’t have to expand the thread to find it.

I’ve found that together these changes make it quicker to keep an eye on threads of interest and get quickly to new posts within them.

The new features can be turned on or off in the options box, so if you don’t use a feature turn it off to speed things up.

Screenshot of the full thread page:

This is probably as far as I’ll take this add-on, as I need to get back to real life ­čÖé ┬áAny problems with it though, please do get in touch.
