NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One savvy computer whiz has come up with a foolproof way to avoid Justin Bieber on the Internet.

Programmer Greg Leuch has created Shaved Bieber, a Firefox add-on that blocks all unwanted Justin Bieber mentions from your browser.

Leuch says the free tool – available on gleuch.com – blocks any news, pictures, or words having to do with the dreamy teen sensation who’s normally all over the Internet.

While some have praised the online Bieber break by offering to buy Leuch a beer or nominate him for a Noble Peace Prize, he also has plenty of haters.

Leuch says he gets daily hate mail from teenage fangirls who compare him to Hitler and threaten to kill him.

Sometimes, the girls are pissed because their parents have downloaded the code onto the family computer and they can’t get their Bieber fix.

Leuch says many parents do this to their teen daughters as a prank, and wishes they’d videotape their tearful reactions.
