If you've been noticing on Phoronix over the past day or so when loading pages, occasionally a large, horizontal ad loading on the left side of the web-site where the vertical "skyscraper" ads are appearing, please let us know. We haven't been able to reproduce this problem ourselves and our ad provider, IDG TechNetwork, has only had limited success in reproducing this problem -- it seems to mainly affect European readers. However, this certainly does obstruct the viewing process and is indeed a bug that we are looking for our ad provider to address as soon as possible...
Fu** hell, I tried to temporally allow the Ads, but I gave up, after five reloads and allowing 10 sites to execute some sort of code. Thats why I use my ScriptBlocker. And nearly every site wants to set at least one cookie.
Call me paranoid if you want, but that is way to much.
i saw today a big green ad with dunno what on it, with no close button ; / it was not good.. i added phoronix to white list on addblock, but have to turn it back to black list, sorry , i was unable to watch the page
yes. It is some flash stuff, because I have flash loading on demand on in konqueror, so I see a huge box with the 'start plugin' button in it. Sometimes all articles are ok, sometimes all articles loaded at the same time are hit. Reloading makes the box disappear.
Big lottery add in a language I don't understand. Got that on all tabs (I open a bunch of them at a time) today for the first batch, then now it's ok (it really should only open on the first tab, but whatever).
