mmmturkeybacon Ghost HIT Buster for Forums

Searches forum posts for HIT links, follows them, determines if the HIT is still available, and strikes the post if the HIT is a ghost or changes the link text to show the automatic approval time and number remaining if the HIT is available. Works with Live Update. Uses just-in-time link checking to reduce "maximum allowed page request rate" errors. Uncomment CHIME to receive an audio alert if there is a new HIT post.
