Description

Concept for hiding users in recent edits page

Proposal:
It will be good if it will possible to hide specific user(s) from Recent Changes. Sometimes some users flood excesively the Recent Changes page (for example users which uses semi-automatic tools like AWB) hundreds of edits in few minuntes - just one user.

So, i request new feature - to not display edits made by user which username i will in a input (for single session).
I attach a picture: tried to reproduce a possible variant of this thing:)

Update:
This thing can be very usefull to monitor recent edits by bots
If a bot made several thousands of edits in last 2-3 hours, in recent changes you will see almost only his edits
&limit=3000&hidebots=0&hideanons=1&hideliu=1
you need to allow use of parameter &hideuser=username
Enable this thing at least for URLs first. In interface you can add feature later
