Re: Full page ads strike again!

BTW, The ad didn't fully load, because I have Dial-Up internet. Hence the grey screen.

Hey Frank,

I found that using "spyhunter 4" daily has eliminated all of the crap like this. It costs a bit ($40?) but WELL worth it.

I don't see any ads. It is worth 20bucks a month.

Use Firefox and install ad block plus plugin. This will get rid of ads, and for the few that aren't eradicated you can add them to the ad block repository so they don't show again. FREE too!

Do you also have a time machine? Are you posting this from 1997?

Re: Full page ads strike again!

Sheesh guys, not all parts of the country have viable access to dial-up!! Can't afford satellite... it would be worth it without the crazy data caps, but I'm not paying exponentially more for a week of use with those stupid caps!

Anyway, I'll try some of the ad blockers, but I was just trying to bring it to everybody's attention that this nonsense is happening again.

I feel for you on dial up man. I think I would have to move if DU was my only viable choice.

Re: Full page ads strike again!

The Ad Block Plus in Firefox will help you, and to help with dial up try using the Mobile Default theme in the bottom left hand corner of Jemsite forum pages. It keeps the important stuff from the regular theme, and ditches a bunch of unnecessary visual stuff. Will speed up your pages a little too.
