A User Javascript for improving Reddit

First of all, I’d like to congratulate “reddit”:http://reddit.com/ on a succesful rewrite and relaunch of their site. Many of my “issues with reddit”:http://virtuelvis.com/archives/2006/11/social-web-is-dead were resolved in this rewrite, conveniently hiding most of the political garbage from me.
There are however points for improvement, so I’ve hacked up an “Opera User JavaScript”:http://virtuelvis.com/download/2007/10/reddit/reddit.js to fix two of the more glaring issues:
# Reddit now displays “load more comments” links. They annoy me, and a bunch of “other people”:http://reddit.com/info/5ydov/comments/. The user script automatically clicks all of these for you.
# Direct links to “details” and “related” sections for an entry are added in all entry listings
The script only works in Opera 9.5, because it uses @getElementsByClassName@ to improve performance. You can grab a build “here”:http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/. If you need help with getting userjs running, here’s a “tutorial”:http://www.opera.com/support/tutorials/userjs/using/

  1. License?

  2. Mark: Sorry, I forgot to add the license yesterday. I’ve added it now, and it’s BSD (Although, I was considering WTFPL for a moment)

  3. Thanks.
    I think Opera is a really modern browser. I downloaded it the other day and noticed loads of features that it supports that amazingly firefox and IE7 dosen’t.
