Is there any Facebook application more annoying than the one that "suggests" you friend random people? Whenever it's someone I actually know, it's inevitably someone I loathe or someone I've dated. (Who is often also someone I loathe.)
Facebook and Twitter both already have fairly effective blocking mechanisms, but Ex-Blocker will also wipe your ex off Google, Tumblr, and anywhere else on the Web they might be lurking. If you have webstalker tendencies and little in the way of self-control, this was made for you. Unfortunately, if you're that much of a mess, you're probably not going to use it.
The plug-in is still being tweaked (it's not compatible with my version of Firefox and doesn't work on Safari), but even when it's all done it'll still have some shortcomings. Like if your ex has a very common name, like Joe Smith, it'll get rid of him, but it'll also get rid of all the other Joe Smiths on the planet. What if there's a hot Joe Smith? Also, you can only block five exes--a mere drop in the bucket of boobs I've dated.
And while there are certain exes I'd prefer not to see online, I'd also like to avoid them IRL. Is there something I can download that'll do that? Or do I have to invent a plug-in that'll throw him out of my favorite bar, cause my friends to uninvite him to their wedding, and make certain that he never again gets on the same bus as me?
Let me know when there's an app for that.
