horrid

ledodgy Wed 21-Feb-07 09:49:31

I hate this one too. This is the only ad that's ever bothered me on here as it's a nightmare to get rid of. It comes down you click the cross to close it you move your mouse a mm and it comes back. GRRRRRRRR!

NadineBaggott Wed 21-Feb-07 09:50:46

I don't get any adverts since someone on here gave me/us a tip on how to banish them. It was after that stupid Scenic ad was annoying everyone.

Beetrootccio Wed 21-Feb-07 09:51:11

yes LUST

etc etc

I mean it though - it is driving me CRAZY

Beetrootccio Wed 21-Feb-07 09:51:40

NB - let me in on the tip - I am on a MAC and don't seem to be able to do it

NadineBaggott Wed 21-Feb-07 09:52:31

I'll see if I can find it. Don't know whether it will work on a Mac though.

hang on

looks complicated but it isn't, give it a whirl.

....... 1. Find your hosts file (at C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts for Windows XP) 2. Mine has a very long list with lots of known adservers in it so that I block most ads anywhere (would be happy to email to anyone who CATs me) but I believe the specific line you need to add (under the line that says "127.0.0.1 localhost") to block the Mumsnet ads is 127.0.0.1 adserver.adtech.de 3. Save hosts file 4. Restart browser (you might also need to reboot the PC, I'm not sure) it works

Beetrootccio Wed 21-Feb-07 10:05:02

no idea how to do that!

look here

"Mac OS 9's hosts file format is based on RFC-1035. Mac OS 9 keeps its HOSTS file in the Preferences folder under the System folder. Edit this file and add a line for each host that you would like to map an IP to:


www.example.com 204.11.246.1"

ARGH! It's popping over all the time, and even when not popped down is "blocking" links at the top middle of the screen (most notably the top few reset watch links in the watching list).

Hate it hate it hate it.

Beetrootccio Wed 21-Feb-07 10:44:28

that was last updated in 2001!

NadineBaggott Wed 21-Feb-07 10:48:39

Look, just go to your bloody hosts file and see what's in it. Then insert

127.0.0.1 adserver.adtech.de 3

not like that BUT IN THE MAC FORMAT!

suck it and see.

NadineBaggott Wed 21-Feb-07 10:50:10

the things I do for you

I've emailed ds is MAC savvy to see if he knows!

llareggub Wed 21-Feb-07 10:54:00

It's awful.

Nothing would compel me to buy whatever it is they are flogging.

NuttyMuffins Wed 21-Feb-07 10:54:41

Argh, it wasn't doing it on my computer but now all of a sudden it is.

MrsBadger Wed 21-Feb-07 10:55:12

I'm also finding it's blocking links even when it's not opened out - means I can't click anything at all in the header between 'threads I'm watching' and 'Contact a Mumsnetter' or the first two threads of Active Convos.

(Firefox 1.5.0.9 AND Safari 2.0.4, MacOs 10.4.8)
