View Full Version : Ban the TMobile banner ads!

I can't browse this site, because the TMobile banners ads keep causing my browser to stutter every 30 seconds or so for about 7 seconds. Otherwise, it stutters for 2 seconds every 4 seconds or so. I notice obvious delays in my browser, Mozilla, and the rotating spectrum wheel for OS X keeps popping up. It's extremely frustrating!

This happening to anyone else?

Nope. PithHelmet. ;)

I got tired at being raped by internet advertising, which BTW is probably going to triple in the next 5 years. Between Safari's built-in popup blocker and PithHelmet, I don't see many ads anywhere.

In safari prefs it allows you to select a style sheet, use this (http://tracker.yo-momma.net/tracker.php?id=12) one, it's great!

The only big problem with using a pop-up blocker and pith helmet is that when you're on a computer without it... well... it sorta freaks you out all over again.

Odd - when I look at this post, the URL and "this" aren't visible. Oh wait - PithHelmet in action, presumably.

So, for people using PithHelmet (default config), the URL is http:// tracker.yo-momma.net / tracker.php?id=12. Hopefully, this will be visible to you. Remove the spaces.

Edit: It's the "tracker" part. PithHelmet users should be able to see the following:
http://trucker.yo-momma.net/trucker.php?id=12

Change trucker to tracker in both places...

An ad-free front page.

BTW: Here's the banner ad's exact URL, which I've been trying to find since I made the thread: http://http300.content.ru4.com/images/0456/28551.swf

Well I found an ad-blocker for Mozilla, which, unlike PithHelmet, is completely free. So... :D

classy-looking ad. makes me kinda wish that firefox didnt automatically block ads...although it doesnt block the google ads at the bottom of the threads

Oh, that is true. My internet is out right now at my apartment ( :mad: ) which is why I'm at school in one of the labs. The popups are insane! I miss my Safari/Pithhelmet :(
