Some assembly required

This blog is about unimplemented ideas. At least until they get ticked off; I suppose a few eventually will have implementations too, but fresh posts never will. Because that's the primary purpose of this blog: keeping track of ideas I'd like to dive into, or problems I'd like to see solved. Feel free to join me in implementing, or further developing these ideas. I don't mind working solo, but it's a whole lot more fun working in concert!

Add link love to Blogger comments script

Write a Greasemonkey user script which scours through Blogger blog post pages (http://*.blogspot.com/*) for comments whose comment body contains one or more links with the rel=nofollow attribute. To each of these posts, add an icon (<3) which, when clicked, kicks off a GM_xmlhttpRequest for the Blogger edit post page (http://www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=blog-id&postID=comment-id), parsing the comment body and removing the REL=NOFOLLOW, before posting the comment back to Blogger again. Upon successful completion, remove the icon from the page.

Additional points awarded for slowly pulsating the icon while busy with the net traffic (code available here).
