There's one cool extension recently that empowers you to ignore specific user(s) in the forums. If you had to face any nagging user often, you will like this feature. In one click, you can mask all posts of this user, and never have to read any in future too!

1. Go to


2. Click on 'Install now'. It'll ask for confirmation, click 'Install'.

3. A window will open. Now close and restart Firefox.

4. Visit the Hub (http://www.mayyam.com/hub/), and go to any topic. You'll see a 'X' in front of every username. Identify an user whose posts you want to mask. Just click the 'X' in front of the username. The page will refresh, and that's it! You have masked that user's posts..! If you want to unmask, go back to that username and click 'Display/Hide'. It toggles between unmask and mask.

Try it..!

With this extension, you no longer need eKalappai or need to type on another website and copy&paste. Just type and post right on this form!


For unicode only.

Adhiyan converts TSCII/TUNE/TAB/TAM/DailyThanthi/Dinamani encoded websites and emails, to unicode on the fly. So you can view them all without installing the required fonts.


A must-have!
