I guess since I am chasing my own tail, that I shouldn't be helping the ad company's we use with sending the offending links to them. There are some tongue in cheek messages, we put up in harmless jest, to bring awareness of the problems created by Adblock. This Site is free, but the Servers, Hosting and Bandwidth, for hundreds of thousands of people every hour is not.
Right at this moment there are 77,636 people attached, later on that number will quadruple until about 2am PST. We have been operating in the red for the last 3 yrs, since donations have fallen after we lost PayPal do to the Hollywrong Trolls. If you have a way for us to do better, than I am all ears. But there are rules that this forum slides on by, and in the last few posts they have been extremely taxed. I am not just a mod, but admin, and I will let this post show as the warning, that there will be less tolerance from now on. Try to get away with that on other forums of this size.

The only thing that I can figure is it is an Exploit that they don't want advertised as it does go to a Tech line. We asked that the Adblock be turned down to non-intrusive ad's. This is something new. As it has been awhile for any complaints after we got thee last batch handled.
