Default AdblockPlus

It would be in the best interest for everyone here to install AdblockPlus into their browser. I know Firefox and Chrome supports it, but I don't know about IE.

If you need to know why I'm pushing for this, PM me.

Any good solutions for mobile? That'* where I have legitimately been browser jacked repeatedly by this site.

Already one step ahead of you on desktop

I suggest not using the mobile/tablet version for this site. Or any 'advertising based forum' for that matter. I understand hosting/owners have a right to earn a dollar to maintain said sites, but there is a point to say no more.

Mike. Per your suggestions a few years ago I installed adblock plus, an awesome program.

I also have had ABP running for years now based on Mike'* recommendation.
Awesome, reliable, free, and seamless.
New: "The most popular ad blocker for desktop browsers is now available for your Android and iOS devices" & is called Ad Block Browser for your smart phone or Tablet.
I am going to throw the main link here, where you will also see "AdBlock Browser"

I'm only recommending it, because here, there are ads galore. Far more than what there used to be.
