Unbreaking the web with greasemonkey

So, a certain MMO recently managed to turn off their wiki, upgrade their forums and in the process break almost all their links from anywhere. Even intra-forum links broke utterly. And the in-game big friendly Help button.

I'd really not want to responsible for that debacle. Breaking seven years worth of web forum google searches and intralinking is utter insanity from a professional standpoint.

But a ten-minute greasemonkey script can fix that for me personally.

Well done irritating your subscribers, Turbine. Whatever will they think of next...
