DKT27: Done as advise on Ad Muncher but still shown with message of "we are funded solely by unobtrusive ads, so please whitelist our domain in your AdBlocker" ! Can you advise how to overcome it, please?

Many many thanks for the guide.

this topic talk about an host file to block bad sites and ads

But it block the ads on the nsanedown site.

do you have a list of the ads website used by nsane so i can erase them in the host file?

or it's better to simply not use it at all?

I'll advice the last line. ;)

Specifically, it will block ads on all the websites that use that ads. If you remove that ad line from the host file, it will show those ads on all the websites that use those ads. So in other words, you cannot whitelist a site in host file ads blocking.

yes, i know that.

but...

if i erase that ad server from the host file, i can whitelist nsanedown in adblock plus(like now) and it would still block the ads from other website, keeping the speed gain from the host file.

thinking about all this...

this is a lot of step to do...to gain not much time.

i will use the old way (adblock plus only)

thank's for the answer

Well, if you want, you can remove everything "infolinks" (without quotes of course) from the host file's list and try. :) We are using infolinks currently, which has less number of websites using it - unlike Google Ads - if we were using those, removing the line from the host file would make it's ad blocking capabilities useless, as that's what 80-90% of the normal websites in the world would be using.

after thinking a little...i erase all the ads sites from the host file (so, nearly half of it.)

i keep...

hijack-sites, shock-sites, spyware-sites, malware-sites, doubleclick-sites, intellitxt-sites,

red-sheriff-sites, cydoor-sites, 2o7-sites, popup-traps, ecard-scam-sites, IVW-sites,

wiki-spam-sites,

that will still block many awful sites.

adblock plus will block the rest (nsanedown whitelisted)

good night DKT27 :P

I see. I'm sure that DNTM would be having a whitelisting option, search for it. It's in my to-add list (for this thread).

If DNTM doesn't have whitelisting option, then stop using it. Use Ghostery (comes for both Firefox and Chrome), it's excellent and offers a lot of options.

why should i allow blocked pop ups here???

Everyone agrees: ads are annoying, right? You never actually click on them and they are of no interest to you at all. This is why having an Ad-blocker might be an good idea. However for many sites their only source of income is advertisements, and blocking them might affect the site's future (you don't want your favourite website to disappear do you?). Some sites even implement blocking mechanisms which won't let you view the site without viewing the ads, but that's not the way to go, if you ask us.

There are sites which have pop-up ads, ads covering the whole page, pornographic ads or ads that won't go away without opening another window, in short: annoying ads. There are also sites which just have simple, innocent, text-based ads. Many of these sites would very much appreciate it if you would whitelist their domain and maybe even give them the odd click, in return they will be able to keep providing their service to you and other visitors.

We are funded solely by unobtrusive ads, so please whitelist our domain in your AdBlocker.

I think it's better if you whitelist infolinks too. While it will globally whitelist infolinks ads, I haven't seen many sites using it.

Came across this new FF extension . Blue Hell Firewall https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bluhell-firewall/

Its a simple no nonsense approach towards Ads and Tracking blocking .

Install and forget and enjoy .

The author specifically made it light weight in counter response to the ABPs performance slowdown. And hence it features no user controls , which means no Whitelists

On or Off ! Thats it ...

But its a pretty good add on , that does work and there is no slow down in FF performance !

Hi, I disabled ghostry. How does the ads work for users and owners? Does a user click on an ad and then the owner gets paid? Or does a user need to do other things like completing the ad? Also how risky are ads for a user? Is it just advertisement or are there occasional backdoors, etc? Also, whitelisting enables tracking on nsaneforums.com, is it ok to disable trackers and still have the ads work?

Lastly, I thought Norton is a bad antivirus so why is it being advertised? Do youy have no choice over the ads?

I did it, and my AV ESS found the adds are dangerous an with viruses. For caution I re-enabled AdBlock Plus, so when your adds to be trusty, I'll disable it again.
