Please tell me who had the terrible idea to add horrible, ugly, intrusive AD BANNERS to the SL site?

Carrie, this upsets me as much as you (I just posted in your general discussion thread), but unfortunately, Lindens dont come or even read in this Q&A section. As to your question, obviously someone at the Lab must have thought he was a genius and LL has approved this idea. I'm afraid none of us has the power to change anything, but posting on Rodvik's wall (if he still in charge) could maybe help to make LL hear our voices.

I sincerely hope your thread won't get wiped by some zealeous mod and that the residents will have the freedom to post their feeling about this.

Do recall that as much as you and I hate advertising (particular LL's tendancy to give preferential treatment to certain businesses), one of the worst problems in SL is the fact that people cannot find anything to do inworld.  So ads about X or Y event is at least a step toward correcting that.

Ansariel, is ABP safe? I'm a bit concerned at the warning message I get "ABP can access to all your data on all websites". Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Using AdBlock Plus for Firefox for years and never had any issues so far. If you install it, you should also open the filter settings and uncheck the option to see unobtrusive ads.

I've been using Spybot Search & Destroy for years. Specifically their Hosts File Blocker List. Those Ad Banners are a thing of the past. I had to disable this feature to see what was being chatted about in this thread.

Still available for free at http://www.safer-networking.org/mirrors16/

Wow - the ads that popped up were useless and tacky!

As a long time Premium member and region owner, you'd think that that status would qualify us for an exemption from these annoying intrusions.

...flips Spybot S&D back on.
