StupidFilter makes us smile

YouTube: land of shared video. And, the land of endless discussion amounting to nothing in the comment section. Some people ignore it, while others are drawn to it like a car wreck involving bikini models. For those that can’t seem to get away from all the obnoxiously pointless comments, StupidFilter may be for you. Still in the development stages, StupidFilter is both simple and genius at the same time. Basically, it works as a spam filter for trolls and idiots. Its open source, self-adapting database is in the field now, using YouTube to gather data in hopes that the Alpha will be ready by December. Once enough of a foundation is set up, it can be implemented by sites to weed out stuff that no one cares to read anyway. We’re just thankful that BGR readers actually have something to say when they comment!
