Why are we still doing this?

Hi. I'm looking for a greasemonkey script that can hide Real Stuff. Anyone?

Okay. So Eichhorn is an unrepentant sexist as well as a brutal sociopath. Someone please remind me not to follow the links to this horrible comic next time.

This is seriously getting out of hand.
And yet, for some reason the foremost question on my mind is how this guy can always count on getting a job at a bar or a nightclub whenever he's broke. I guess things were different then.

Each one just gets worse in that Penthouse letters way. Who said this was okay to be here ? I like comics, I like autobiography, I like terrible tales, I like some pornography - but I am hating this.

Wasn't Boing Boing supposed to be about "wonderful" things at one point?

I am pretty sick of this guy's terrible comics from twenty years ago. Please can this sexist chump, boingboing

God, these things are nothing but vile.

I'm being told to "criticize ideas, not people" in the pop-up here--fair enough.
While I support and advocate the use of all sorts of things wonderful and wild on the Internet, I'm disappointed to see the generally delightful BoingBoing serving up content such as this: sexist, abusive, misogynistic tripe, in words and pictures. Jesus Christ, did Xeni and LadyAda sign off on this crap? I used to send some of my students to your website for your wonderful Maker ideas--no longer.
The gulf between "B is for Battery" and "big, steamy, luscious cunt" is staggering. You guys need to get your shit together.
Thank for the memories.

I like this comic and i like that BB has the testicular fortitude to publish such a comic. Challenging their userbase's ideas of what is and isn't acceptable in their safe space blog community is beautiful. I think this shit is hilarious and i can hold the idea of respecting people and also the raunchy (possibly fictional) life of a man in the same space. I see no reason why no one else in this place can. That or we can fill this place up with more pictures of banana accessories and funny cat videos of the day.

Now he's just taking the piss.

Certainly! The following userscript will remove Real Stuff posts from the front page, and from the sidebar. It will not remove them from the BBS. It's also available here.
Be warned that the posts will flash on screen before being removed, and that there is some risk that this will remove unrelated posts with similar titles; I will try to update the script on userscripts.org if it becomes a problem. Please let me know if you have any comments, though, as you can see, it is an exceedingly simple script.
// @name Remove Real Stuff posts
// @match http://*boingboing.net/*
// @version 0.1
// @copyright 2013, cegev/cge, but released to public domain
// @require http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js
This userscript is being provided as a service to those who have requested it, and the many here who seem that they would appreciate it. It is not intended as any sort of judgement on the worth or taste of Eichhorn's work, of which I will merely comment that venue impacts appropriateness.

Miley Cyrus posts and this poor excuse for a cartoon? Are the BoingBoing interviews with Dr Phil and Emo Philips coming next?

Haha... keep them coming!!

IIRC, Rob Beschizza said he was ashamed to be part of BoingBoing, or something along those lines, after the one where Denny fucks a lesbian straight and they go to a gay bar together to beat up some queers.
I'm actually pretty curious about who did and does sign off on this, and what their rationale is. I bet there's an interesting story there.
Mod Note: That was Antinous, not me. -- Rob

It was Antinous who expressed that opinion. Antinous wrote: "Yeah. This is despicable, and I'm ashamed to be associated with Boing Boing right now."

Although this one is definitely rock bottom for the series both in terms of writing and drawing, I appreciate it for the outrage in the comments section.
