Thank goodness for Adblock

Seriously, do we really have to block ads for jobs at the top of threads. Even if they are in the Employment forum....

Adblock just got a workout I'd recommend others to consider doing the same

Eh? I can't see anything.

Though if you want a really painful experience, try reading as a guest. It's the main reason I reregistered.

The month's most pointless thread, amongst a forum full of pointless threads. Sean, you win the internets.

The majority of ads. can only be seen for non-members and members who haven't logged on ......... thank goodness for saved passwords and auto-fill.

Re: Thank goodness for Adblock

I believe I might have been somehow logged out....

But bloody hell, when you're logged out, EF looks like a 93-year-old pensioner's front room - where she's used the same material for her clothes and her curtains

You know what I mean.....:

Addblock, Admuncher & Adguard.

Just see for yourself which one you like most, they all do the job.

Re: Thank goodness for Adblock

Adblock Plus works pretty well on my ancient mac mini. However I canīt find anything to block these wretched "Congratulations you have won a i-phone" Or a Samsung or whatever on my phone. Thing is you canīt click them away and you canīt use the site you want because they simply come back within seconds if you close and reenter.
I wonder what will happen when they realize that adverts donīt work.

Ad block plus had some issues with Safari so I use Ghostery. Works well
