  • Steve Barnes,

    You don't have to do them individually. , it actually blocks the ad server aplication wide. ie. if you block an add on the Herald website that server will be blocked on other sites.
    Here is an explanation Here
    Also you can be selective about things to block.

    By default, this tries to use some logic to block all ads from the source, but this may sometimes be overkill. To correct this, click the image again (to unblock it), then Shift-click it. This will add only the specific image to the filter list. This filter can then be broadened by clicking Edit.

    You're welcome. Have you checked out the "Notes" feature, very handy. select text and Right click and select copy to note, this will save the selection to a note. If you double click on a note it will take you back to the page you copied it from, neat eh?.

    Just had a play with that - that's very cool:) For some reason though the Reply isn't working on the bottom right of your post. Do you find that too? Maybe its my fault for blocking ads too aggressively.

    Works for me. can't think what that may be.
    Have you tried the mail client?

    Mail client works fine. If I open in new tab it just takes me to top of page. It used to work so I must have broken it with my ad-blocking. I think I will make this site the one exception where I let ads run. Provided there is no flash of course:)

    Yep - now it works. For some reason the ad-blocking killed the reply functionality.

    It seems to do that, coding error on page I think...

    Some would say that ad blocking is theft. The owner of the site, that you want to visit, may get some recompense for you seeing that ad.

    Or a form of consumer vigilantism, if you're browsing a site that makes shit up and passes it off as news.

    This took an interesting turn in the last US presidential elections when some Democrat supports wrote scripts to repeatedly click on the McCain on-line ads with the aim of draining money from his campaign.

    That type of gaming of the system doesn't really sit right with me but am happy blocking ads on web pages as I see this as no different to using a DVR to avoid watching ads, or fast-forwarding through ads on old-fashioned VHS.
