Former Slashdot(RIP) user here...I just want to give you guys a heads up about a cool Greasemonkey script which works on Soylent News:
Slashdot Expandable Comment Tree v2
Adds [+][-] symbols next to all comments allowing you to expand and collapse any of them for viewing. The script is here-----http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/38184 [userscripts.org]
To modify the script to work on SoylentNews:
Open the script in a text editor, and add this line: // @include http*://*soylentnews.org/*
Does this still work? I love the idea but it doesn't appear to be functional...
