Moderation: blocking ads

Yes, I waive my rights to moderation privacy and wish to discuss this openly.

I am happy to follow rules, but it's difficult to follow rules when you make them up on the spot and they are not listed in the forum rules.

Please do not make posts explaining ways of blocking ads.
Since when is this against the rules? There is nothing in the rules about this so why were 3 of my posts deleted today? I have read the rules again tonight to make sure and there is definitely nothing in there.

The first one was the one mentioned below in the pm from the moderator. I really don't understand why my 3rd post was deleted though since I was agreeing with the original poster and saying how unscrupulous the advert was. Somehow that wasn't liked by the moderator. Frankly this is a poor show all around.

Your post:
Adblock + Flashblock will solve all annoying add problems. The internet actually looks quite good. It's always a shock to go back to browsing on mobile Safari though.

Two things you should know
  1. The purpose of this message is to make sure you know about the rule so you can follow it.

  2. We'll be glad to give you more information about the forum rules, especially if the reason for this message is not clear from the post and the applicable forum rule.

What you should do
  1. You can continue using the forums but please review the Forum Rules in case you are not aware of them or have forgotten them. All forum members are responsible for observing the forum rules in the posts they make. By following the rules you can avoid annoying other forum users.

  2. If you have questions or don't understand why you've gotten this reminder, see Moderation Reminders.

  3. If you've read the FAQs but you still have questions or a complaint, use the Contact form to ask an administrator to clarify or for a review.

Additional clarifications from the moderators (optional)
Please do not make posts explaining ways of blocking ads.

All the best,
MacRumors Forums
