It’s a slow day at work, so I spent most of this morning trying to figure out how to block the ‘Shared from Deals’ posts. It seems like each blog has it’s own identifier, so you can block posts from specific blogs from showing...in this case, Kinja Deals. ABP already does a great job getting rid of all the sponsored content nonsense on the FP, but I was always annoyed by the multitude of the crappy “deal” posts.
What’s amusing is if I go to the kinja deal front page, all the posts are hidden, except posts shared from other blogs....which actually tend to be deals of sorts.
If you change the number to ”1604609298" it blocks the Kinja Roundup.
