I'm using this 'clickhappier-archive' account to post archival copies of old MTurk-related userscripts from (which is itself an archive of the defunct site and forum posts, which their authors or others haven't re-posted on Greasyfork yet. Some of these may no longer be all that interesting as more recent scripts may do what they do better, but some remain very useful.

Script Name: Mturk Block Individual Requests

Last update Oct 22, 2012 — Installed 15,075 times.

Script Summary: I modified the mturk 'Block Requesters' script to allow you to block individual HITs in the same manner. After you've installed the script, if you have any mturk search pages open, refresh them and you should see a small 'x' next to the 'View a HIT in this group' button. Click that and the page will refresh with the selected HIT hidden. If you want to view your blocked HITs for a given page, you will see a link that says 'Show X rBlocked' where X is the number of HITs which you've hidden on that page. Click that link and the page will refresh with the hidden HITs now visible and an option to unblock them. Pretty easy! Happy turking!
- This is still in what you would call 'beta' mode, as I've only tested it out on Firefox with Greasemonkey. If anyone is using other user-script-compatible browsers, let me know if everything appears to be working. [author is currently inactive]
- This does not replace the 'Block Requesters' script, nor does it require it, so they should have no problem working together or separately. If you block a HIT AND its requester, you will have to unblock them both in order to completely unblock the HIT.
- 'rBlock' doesn't mean anything in particular, it's just to distinguish individually blocked HITs from ones blocked due to requester.
- The vast majority of the credit for this goes to the author of the original script, all I did was modify a few lines of code to switch the focus from requesters to requests.

Version: 0.0.5

Note from Clickhappier: As is the case with a number of the scripts I've posted with this archive account, I haven't tried using this script myself, don't know how well it still works... but with over 15,000 downloads on the old site, I thought it deserved to be saved here.
I recommend trying my new (2015) script 'CH Block Using HIT Scraper's Blocklist' instead, which is able to block by requester names and individual HIT titles all in one.
