Every modern website has a user comment section these days and it has become an additional source of information as different users share their experience and let others know about the quality of a product, advise, and alternative options. Comments come in different forms, YouTube Video comments, Product reviews or experience with a product as on Amazon.com, direct comments on a blog or as messages on a Facebook profile page. It also gives publisher or seller an opportunity to understand the users reaction and how satisfied they are. Though its useful for most of the internet users but sometimes it can be worst for you because commenters can be stupid, stereotyped and cruel and those comments from them may hurt your feelings or bring your morale down. By using a simple comment blocker tool like Shut Up or CommentBlocker you can hide or turn off comments everywhere on the internet when you browse on your computer or iPhone. Some websites are well known for their excellent comments features like Amazon.com but others like news portal, YouTube and many more are filled with spam, trolls, hates, typos and worse. Using the comment blocker tool you can also make some website show comments while hiding it for others.
