RE: How do I protect myself against pop-under ads on Mediafire?

<green> There also is one called "</green>KillJasmin<green>" that I also use in case the main script also adds the pop-unders- but still the direct pop-under killers should be a secondary line of defense. There still are the fundamental questions of just what kind of sites use such things? Are those...

RE: How do I protect myself against pop-under ads on Mediafire?

<green> Running an </green><yellow>AV</yellow><green> is attempting to stuff the genie back into the bottle. It would be far better to stop it in the first place with tools such as NoScript. Run it correctly and there won't be any </green><yellow>AVs</yellow><green> infections to scan for. It sounds...

RE: Thank you for finally fixing WOT

<green> Let's put the horses back into the stable for a moment. This entire thread is way off base as there indeed is much work to be done.

RE: Guidelines refreshed

<green> The power of the mods are about where they should be now. If we gave them powers such as banning users that could lead to catastrophe as dumb or biased moderators could damage the community. Most of our moderators are doing a great job right now and there isn't a crying need for drastic chan...

RE: Time to switch adblockers?

<quote user="WOTRocks223"> However, NoScript breaks certain legitimate websites like GoAnimate, to the point where I can't even see the site content.</quote> <green>No. That is user error causing that- unless the site has such deep issues that it's main script can't be run safely- and in those cases...

<green> PM comes with much of that built in. It has a detailed system ready to go without any user interaction.

RE: Be more cautious at evaluations of Social Network pages.

<quote user="GTotalYacht"> No, I do not think so. You find a very similar system at Blogger. Google just managed constantly to have a neutral rating, however a blog was rated. </quote> <green>That makes sense.
