Purify is $2, but I would imagine the free ones probably work as well.
It has gotten foolish to not run an ad-blocker. Support your sites direct.

I have 5 script/ad/tracker blockers running...RBR serving bitcoin miner malware still made it through--but got stopped by 3rd party AV (NNOT by MSE though). Said script was JS and therefore cross-platform and my phone got hit by it (took a factor reset to clear out).

BF.net hasn't gotten hit but MTBR and RBR goty hit hard (and their lack of administration made it last a month), BF.net will get hit sooner or later.

Not to make bones about it, but you did miss the point.


It's not a personal vendetta by the owners to make your life the double toothpick.


It also doesn't bother me when I'm not logged in and I don't see ads when I am because I'm a Ti Club member


But I ALSO see that 99 percent of you with the problem seem to use mobile devices.


Did all that prefetching issue (that's what the L1 on your chips is about) get patched and did it make a difference?


I don't think it helped that, because that wasn't what it was about.


All I hear from a few of you is YOU fix it, I don't need to do a thing.


Which hasn't been true at all. We all spent plenty of time here helping Tom Stormcrowe get the kinks out of vB4 when we were the first to use it back then, we were the Beta testers. There seems to be a world of difference now.


It's not irrelevant, and it's your fault if you don't explore the possibilities and simply wear your thumbs and mind out suffering.


BF's MUP is a two-way.

No I didnít miss the point, you did. If I were to go online to any website and they redirect me to crap ads that make the site unusable, I donít try to fix it on my end, I just stop going to that site all together and that is really what I need to do with this site, but I am just being stupid and stubborn for not following my own advice. Itís really just time to stop my stupid irrational behavior and give up on this site for good. And after nearly 17 years that is hard seeing I have been here longer than any admin I can find.
