We're working to get congress to enact a law prohibiting the publication of the name and identity of alleged or convicted mass murderers. Every time you see this, remind someone of our message, and we'll be one step closer.

I worry that this extension will give media an out to say: "Well, just download a plugin if you don't like what we do." But I really do love this idea! We need the airheads and fear pimps in the media to stop granting this fame. "If it bleeds, it leads," has to go! I will rate this 5 stars when it calls these killers what they are, cowards. It should replace names as: (coward's name removed out of victim respect). Or, just put (loser) or (coward) and we will know exactly what is being censored. I also had to knock it a star because after trying it on several articles on CNN and a couple other sites reporting about mass shootings, it didn't block the names. That is kind of an important thing for it to do.

Great idea. We've got to do something to stop these horrible murders. But the media is so desperate for stories they play them up which is just what the murderers want. Regular people like us need to do what we can..and this should help!
