Google Chrome extension - herpderp filter for YouTube comments

Exhaustively tested on my PC at work AND my PC at home. Wow!

Google Chrome only for now; Firefox probably coming soon.

I've never heard of this before, and it makes my YouTube experience so much better.

Side question: Why does the derpification run in a setInterval? Just no predictable way to know when comments are done loading?

because that's how the original extension worked and I've only spent a grand total of two hours on this :)

I imagine there's things I could do, possibly using MutationObservers or something similar, to make this event-driven instead of polling-based. Maybe I'll look into that when I get a few free minutes.
