Jackson Palmer, the creator of Dogecoin, after having enough of the XRP Army on Twitter, decided to extend the scam bot blocker he users for Ethereum to XRP supporters who have been giving him a hard time. The XRP Army is made up of a large number of dedicated XRP supporters who actively support the second largest cryptocurrency per market capitalization on Twitter.
After being attacked by these users several times, Palmer decided to create an open-source script that will automatically block XRP accounts on Twitter preventing others from being able to mention anyone who enables the script. Palmer refers to the script as ‘XRP Away’. It is an extension of the script he developed to use against Ethereum scam bots. It became a popular option after Elon Musk requested that a developer provides a solution that he can use block malicious comments on his Twitter updates. Palmer said on Twitter:
“You can find the script for automatically blocking XRP accounts that enter your mentions at https://gist.github.com/ummjackson/8fe9ef99819777c2e6655b5e71dd61ac. I have named it XRP Away™️”
In reply to @grahammcbain, Palmer had initially said that his open source Ethereum scam bot blocking script will be modified to block XRP users and would be available later in the day. After announcing the debut of the script, Palmer offered a sound warning:
“If you have XRP in your name or bio, make sure you don’t mention me or reply to my post. If you do, this script will block you. I have improved its signals to noise ratio.”
What Palmar means is that when the script is running, users will be able to see posts related to XRP but will be unable to access profiles that have XRP in them. These ones will be blocked automatically. So, they would be unable to mention you or see your posts.
The XRP community may be a pain in the neck for some people but they have done a lot of work as a united front with a common goal. Their efforts and the effort of Ripple have combined to make XRP the second largest cryptocurrency per market capitalization. This is also why the coin has outperformed others amid a bear market.
