Greasemonkey script to disable emoticons in Jira

If you’re using Jira, you’ve seen it take your SQL and mangle it into emoticon nonsense:


First, make sure you have GreaseMonkey (for Firefox) or Tampermonkey (for Chrome) installed.

Then click this link to install the userscript that undoes this madness. Like all userscripts, scroll through and read it before installing! It is enabled for all urls that match “jira” (you may need to change this to match your installation). It walks through the DOM looking for img elements with the ’emoticon’ class, and replaces them with a text node. May your journey be free from extraneous gold stars, forevermore.
