Re(18): Ads on this message board IP: 184.108.40.206 Posted on September 19, 2016 at 10:46:26 PM by Simon Long
Unfortunately, this board is now being targeted with adverts by a company called Adreclaim, who specifically detect the use of ad blockers and use a different technique to serve ads to people who run a blocker.
This can allegedly be defeated on Chrome with an additional extension called uBlock Websockets extension - unfortunately there doesn't appear to be an equivalent for Safari.
I do wonder at the mentality / morality of the individuals responsible for an advertising system which is directly aimed at forcing advertising on people who have explicitly made an effort to avoid it - it can't possibly make them any money, so I can only assume they are doing it out of sheer sociopathy...
