Solved Credits and Spam Advertising removal

Post by Siliconocean on March 1st 2011, 10:51 pm

Since l use firefox with adblock and no script l was not aware of spam advertising on the forum till informed by community group members attempting to register. That was over a month ago.
I bought credits and used them to remove the ads and thought that was the end of it.

Today using Google Chrome, also with adblock and noscript, l went to main site url and there was a 'gmail msg: you have mail waiting. As l had just posted group messages in FB and Twitter l thought it might be related.
Clicked on it. It was posing as an Audi ad and when l tried to close it, l had pop up message about 'your IP address has been selected' etc.
I logged into forum, no advertising in there.
Logged out.
Again advertising on front page mimicing an msn 'you have mail waiting' message.
Same place, right between banner and login area.

No wonder no one has used the forum yet.

What l want to know is:
1. Why does this site support advertising that is potential IP Hijacking.
2. Why hasn't purchase of credits worked to removed this spam advertising.

1. That would be your own fault for clicking. Its based on keyworks, cookies etc.... If you don't like the ad's you should contact Typlo or remove them for guest as well.
2. Depends if you buy credits to remove it from members or guest.
