    "If USMB allows ads to destroy their forum it is up to them.
    They are forcing people to get ad blocker and then where will they be?"


    What is the problem P F? The AdBlocker's are free and the downloads take less than one minute.

    It's not just this forum, the AdBlocker's also help with example YouTube preventing an annoying ad appearing every ten seconds or whatever.

    Please darling there is no need to be a Drama Queen and/or Drama King :funnyface:

    This is of course all the fault of Global Warming, Putin and North Korean Hackers, working together they have succeeded in genius and evil fashion in destroying P F's ENTIRE PLANET so much that he is unable to download AdBlocker :eek-52:

    I have Win 10 and I have no idea what nebulous "list" you're referring to.

    Adblock earns cash by maintaining a whitelist. You are free to disable this whitelist. You also can add lists not related to Adblock. However, many free programs come without a rub in it.
