I have come to know the true power of Kittehs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Before Kitten Block I lived in state of ignorant moral myopia in the thrall of the Daily Mail. I existed in world of fear worried reinforced with ideas that "teenage pregancies could give YOUR house diabetes" and "unions COULD be responsible for global warming" . Whenever I had a dinner party, I had to make sure that the recipe from the day's issue of Femail was prepared with ingredients from Waitrose. I was constantly ensuring that my family was always though of as "hard-working". It got to the point where I was suspicious of everyone around me; whenever my neighbour across the road saw me looking through his window with my telescope, he quickly shut the curtains. "He's obviously a terrorist" I would mutter while eating a Jamie Oliver endorsed biscuit.Then my husband installed Kitten Block and I must say, it has turned my life around. No longer do I have to worry that a lone man talking to my children will abduct them as soon as my back is turned. I will be able to sleep soundly knowing that people on benefits will not be building a wind turbine in my garden or that council workers are hiding in my cupboard monitoring my recycling. ALL HAIL THE POWER OF THE KITTEHS!

A useful little add-on to deny the Waily Fail and Waily Ex-Press unintended page views. The less revenue this unabashed propagandists received, all the better for the cause of public discourse and society as a whole.

I would add though, that you should perhaps add www.thisismoney.co.uk to the list of sites blocked by this add-on. It's owned by the Daily Mail as far as I can see, it's comments sections are certainly littered with the same bitter, entitled little right wingers. ;-)

Make sure that tea has plenty of veritaserum Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I heartily approve! Tea and kittens. Two of my very favorite things. If you could kindly add pink cardigan sweaters for that warm, cozy feeling in drafty old castles, it would be ever so perfect. It reminds me of the time when I had to ban that horrid rag, "The Quibbler", in order to uphold the high educational standards of Hogwarts. Should I ever have need of another Inquisitorial Squad, I'll be sure to remember you.

I used to be a massive racist and so naturally turned to the Daily Mail and Daily Express websites for my regular dose of ignorance and thinly veiled race-hate. But this plugin has really turned my life around. I've started having thoughts like "Maybe it's not all the fault of the European Court of Human Rights?","Perhaps there are some substances that neither cause nor prevent cancer?", and "Maybe Princess Diana was a bit overrated?" Thanks to Kitten Block, my fear of imaginary crime has rapidly dissipated and so I last week I left the house for the first time in 18 years. I've also stopped endlessly checking the price of my property on rightmove and started, y'know, being nice to people instead. Thanks Kitten Block, I'm not a unthinking dufus anymore. First class.

TY TY TY!!! Love this. Makes me smile every time it pops up. No more cheap news stories to piss me off. Wish it worked more on Yahoo but thats the only downside to this great add on.

Good, but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Helps me avoid misinformation. I wish there were more plugins like this. When I do want to read some rubbish, though, I would like the option to agree to be brainwashed with a one-click bypass. Instead you have to disable the add-on and then go back to the page.

super idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What a wonderfully British idea, I love it.
I totally get why this add-on was created some of the stuff I read in them papers just make me want throw my laptop out of the window. I get so mad . Just one request I'd like to see pictures of puppy's too.

What a relief! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I give a great sigh of joy at the generous and timely interventions of tea and kittens, saving me from D.M. and D.E.'s pernicious, misleading drivel. Hooray and thanks!

I'm always clicking Daily Mail links when they promise something vaguely informative - "I can compensate for the journalism; it'll give me an idea of the ballpark the truth is in", I always tell myself - but when I see Tea and Kittens appear instead of the page, I remember that the story always makes me far more angry than is worth it, and I'll never get back the minutes spent laughing at or ogling the homepage.

A brilliant idea!! this is why I love firefox - ie wouldn't protect me from the evil that is the Daily Fail.
Thank you!

Absolutely brilliant idea Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant extension, the genius behind the idea is as plain as your nose, which ever way you look at it. And yes, perfect for Twitter users wishing to click through short links without having to be involved in the continuous OUTRAGE of the dreaded Daily Fail.

To the developer, I have two requests: would it be possible please to have an option to add other domains to the redirect? Strikes me this would be pretty easy. Or failing that, maybe a grid of checkboxes to enable/disable a selection of "news" sources. I'd like The Sun to get the same treatement, ideally. [ http://dontbuythesun.co.uk/ ].

Secondly, is it possible to have the link read and processed before the original website is accessed by the browser? At the minute, you can sometimes see the DM site appear before you are subsequently redirected. This means that he DM is still getting to record a hit on the page when these links are clicked. It would be even better if the traffic never reached their site.

Either way, thanks for a great idea and a great extension!

A life-saver for Twitter links! A wonderfully simple concept, that has reassuringly calming effect. Just knowing it is their helps me breath easier... Now, it just needs a custom black-list, and it'd be purr-fect!

Genius idea, has saved me from many accidental forays into the danger zone due to use of URL shorteners.
