Thread: Adsense Blocking - Heads up

  1. #1

    Adsense Blocking - Heads up

    If you all don't mind, when you post a new thread into this forum around a particular ad that you think should be block, please use the following title design:

    'Adsense - title keywords'

    I get a daily summary of all new threads started across the entire site but unfortunately don't look at all of them unless something jumps out at me.

    With 'adsense' in the title, I'll immediately recognize that I need to hop in and do something. Otherwise I fear I may leave you all stranded.

    Also, just to help clarify what should and shouldn't be blocked. By all means if anyone finds an ad to be offensive - either completely off-topic or touting something we know lacks scientific evidence - then we're happy to block it. Not all ads however will be directly related to cancer issues (like an autotrader ad recently) and I think these are ok.

    But please feel free to raise any questions you want and I'll try to answer them.

    Hi Michael

    understood I tend to click the ads as I know it is a source of revenue. Be assured I will only report sites promoting stuff that is illegal to be touted as cancer cures in our countries or sites posting ridiculous lies about current evidence based treatments.

    RULE NUMBER 2..... Don't forget rule Number 1

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    I have a great pop up blocker that gets rid of all the ads. I had a problem with an ad covering some of a post and in the reply window. It was an aussie ad for a car and I rang them and complained. Their IT department got back to me ( I really wasn't expecting any follow through) but I had the problem solved by then.

    I would put any ads found on this thread by anyone that you/they do not think are suitable for this site and do a post on it in the Admin forum.

    This topic is for forum members that find offensive or annoying pop-ups.

    The IB Techs should be monitoring this forum, but if not, or if you find something questionable, please report it in the admin forum to Emily's attention. She'll handle it from there -- as much as it can be controlled.

    I use Adblock Plus and Ghostery, plus the pop-up blocker that is built into Firefox. Sometimes I have to whitepage a few sites as they block too well and I actually will lose content.

    Also note the first post, as that was from a tech at IB. Not sure if they are the same now, but we can check with Emily on that score.

    Left my embrace to live with our Heavenly Father in October of 2007 and now breathes with ease forever. I will miss this gentle, giving soul with the easy smile for the rest of my days, but have faith we will be together again. He's just getting a little break from me!
