Firefox

Firefox with the Adblock extension will keep things nice and quiet. It blocks scripts and images.

The ads are sent through Adbrite. It is processed through the forums. It helps offset the cost of operating the forums.

65, I used the following to block ads so far:
*adbrite*
*extreme-dm*
*alexa*
*googlesyndication*

Enter those exactly as you see written and that will keep things quiet while still allowing the google maps thing to work.

Well.........I clicked on my Airstreamforums bookmark, and an ad for NetZero was what opened up!!! I hit the "reload" button, and the Airstreamforums page opened up! Personally, I find this unacceptable. Is there another way to display ads, if they are necessary to support the site? Meanwhile....ADblock will be installed on my Firefox....

Annoying, intrusive, persistent, crap

I got the ad yesterday (so far not today).

Just suddenly the Forum disappeared and some strange website came up. No obvious way to close it out. Pressing the Back button took me back to the Forum, then a second latter it again jumped to the strange website. I though I'd been hacked.

It is hijacking, claiming to be something for my benefit.

You can't force me to read or accept an undesired website, all you do with that kind of advertising is make me angry. Anger at the advertiser cannot lead to sales. Lessening the otherwise good experience on the Forum would drive me away from the Forum.

Andy will be working on this since there is something not working correctly at this point. All of us are seeing this....including the moderators. Obviously this is not a good thing. Thanks to everyone for their feedback.

Thank you for posting your comments. I will be working this week to take your comments and create a solution that will prevent your from having to deal with these ads...

Add my displeasure to the long list. Ads may be necessary but this is over the top!

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Andy, it cannot get fixed soon enough. I just had a very difficult time getting rid of it. It acts like it has a "mind" of it's own.
