Moving to a new board has reinstated an old problem. Talking ads that scream in shoddy quality audio, "CONGRATULATIONS!! YOU WON!!" I think we all know that those things are scams and it's really intrusive to be listening to my music and then have that obnoxious voice blast through my speakers. As before, could we perhaps do away with them?
It's sound, sight, color tripping on instinct and somewhere somehow you can hear the echoing remnants of the same story being spun till it has solid shape and weight to it. And you begin to understand that maybe it wasn't so crazy after all. Do you hate me so, for giving voice to soul?[/font]
If it's theirs, then the previous thing of "ctrl+alt+r" should allow people to report the problem ads.
As for the warning system, I'm not sure, as I said. I've not had much opportunity to learn the Proboards system. I'm assuming it reduces over time, though, since that's what the system on our previous board would do.

Sometiems when I enter a new page, a pop up comes it. It tells me I'm trying to acess a site called JD Williams (I'm not), and that this isn't the website I want (I guess it's refering to TS?) It then says something about ads or flase advertising. It frezes the page, so my only option is to click the pop-up away. But it only gives me the option to click "okay", which takes me to their website.
Any idea how to block this one?
Yeah, that's not a talking ad obviously. But pop ups (especially ones that play dirty to get you to their sites) aren't allowed on Proboards either. Only I can't tell if it's reaching through proboards or adbrite, and even if it was proboards I couldn't report it because it freezes the page.

you should be able to hover over the image or link or whatever and (in chrome) it'll show you down at the bottom of your browser who's hosting the site and it'll be some name like Ad.Service.com or something like that, you can report them to proboards and they'll get rid of it.
Also, if you know about host files you can block that link from connect with your computer and that'll stop the ad from loading at all, but I'm not gonna explain how to do that in depth >.>;;

@zax; no, it doesn't work.
I believe it's getting in through proboards, since it happened on another forum that doesn't use Adbrite. I contacted the website to complain, but their response was for me to take it up with my browser. They never explained why it was happening, tried to assure me it wasn't their fault, or explain why it's got anything to do with my browser considering it's THEIR website that's doing it. It makes me a bit suspicious of them.
Technically, they aren't porn. They just show Russian women in skimpy under thrusting their boobs at me and the ad saying how much they want a real western man like me(sometimes adding especially as I have such a big penis.) Being a teenage straight girl with no aforementioned penis, this is more irritating than a turn on. Though I am admittedly western.
