Is there any setting/userscript/extension available to disable/remove all reputation, badges and badge notifications from the stackoverflow interface?

It just clutters the interface for me and I don't see the point in having them.

Activity on sites like stackoverflow as someone that answers questions should be purely altruistic anyway ;)

In addition to the greasemonkey script mentioned in the answers I'm also using this userscript in Opera

    opera.addEventListener('BeforeScript', function(e){
        var o = document.getElementById('notify-container')
            o.style.display = 'none';
            removeEventListener.call(opera, 'BeforeScript', arguments.callee, false);
    }, false);

Here's a greasemonkey script that does that

And the accepted answer to this question also has one (although it only hides reputation)

There's no way to do this in the UI; you'd have to write a greasemonkey script to do it. Wouldn't be very hard, as all the <div>s and <span>s you'd want to hide have unique names.


You could also use site-specific stylesheets. It'd be even easier if SO provided a CSS signature.
