popups and banners getting by my filters on GW

mrtulinMay 9, 2011


Firefox and Adblock have worked very, very well for a long time. However, on Gardenweb and only Gardenweb I am getting popups and banner all the time. Obviously, "blocking" individual ads does nothing, b/c a hundred more are just waiting in line to leap in!

On ad block's 'advanced filter' a 'pattern' is referred to. S

Please tell me how to keep Ivillage from posting any kind of ad.

Also, if you have the inclination, in general I'd like to understand how to look for a 'pattern' in case this happens again.

btw, I know how to disable intelliads or rollovers. Disabling that worked for months on end. Now it seems I have to refresh that disable every couple of weeks. Could I be imagining it?

Many thanks, from a cranky person who hates these ads!
