    Sex sites

    Whenever I go to the AussieVapers forum another page opens that is about sex; **** FREE! at the moment, but I don't know if it changes.

    Why?

    it is important to point out that basically, the site has been compromised by a 3rd party spammer and those adds are being served here at AVF are not in the interests of vaping ! One safe and effective way to overcome this is to install an add blocking extension such as Adblock Plus - https://adblockplus.org/ - its free and works on most windows browsers and android and it works well- you just do not see adds at all.

    but another safer and more effective solution would be FOR JATO THE SITE ADMINISTRATOR TO CLEAN UP THE JS INJECTION seriously this needs to be fixed. If Jato does not have the time or interests, perhaps he could/should outsource this - perhaps we could organise a fund raiser ????

    also thinking that in addition to adblock plus - use ublock origin as well if on a pc also free and often catches what adblock plus cant or wont*


    Pls note - Adblock plus and other blockers often make deals with companies to let a few slip through - its also why its good to have more than one adblocker

    Updating your "hosts" file is very effective, I use the one from here plus for some other sites, "uBlock Origin". But I do wish our MIA admin would just fix it at the server ...

    My malwarebytes pro trial goes bonkers when I look at avf, popping up with outgoing blocked messages. Makes me not want to visit

    Adblock Plus has long been abandoned by most serious ad haters as they did indeed take money to let "partners" through

    Ublock Origin is the current best option - it has a large list of 3rd party lists it can use (though that doesnt mean you should tick all of them - slowdowns/web breakage may occur)

    But never use both or two such blocking addons, you'll just double the processing needed per page and this will slow down page load times, and also risk the possibility of breaking websites

    Yeah we can install modify or alter our browsers.. no, never install 2 add blockers... just pick one that works for you ...

    but for first time visitors, people wanting to get off the fags and interested in learning about vaping.. seriously we are turning them away by serving up porn ... just fix the damm site !!

    Yep, +1,000,000 for updating the hosts file. It works for all browsers and all apps. It's system wide.

    People freak out when they see what you have to do - edit a text file. All you *really* have to do is tag the contents of the Steve Black hosts file on the end of your own. Pretty well all ads go away forever.

    I've even offered to do the edit for people - send me your hosts file and I'll send you back one that works. (most peoples hosts files don't have anything much in them anyway)

    Where's the host file kept Fab & do I just copy & paste it to send to you? I'm using adblock plus & don't have any problems now at AVF.
