Breaking up is hard to do. Avoiding an ex whose name keeps popping up all over the Internet is harder. Customized plug-in Ex-blocker looks to eradicate the heartache by providing a highly personalized Web-browsing filter. To get rid of an ex (virtually, of course), add their first and last name, Twitter username, Facebook and blog URLs and — voila! — bad boyfriend is erased from Web surfing search results and social media streams!
Ex-blocker isn’t limited to avoiding ghosts of girlfriends past. Just about anyone can be blocked. Sick of reading about Lindsay Lohan’s train-wreck life? Just add LiLo’s name and info to Ex-blocker. Users can add up to five exes (or other individuals) to their online "do-not-display” list.
