    hey guys,

    yesterday or the day before i saw a $49 dedicated server provider's ad in the banner, trouble is i had already clicked a link when i noticed it and now i can't get it again, anyone see it?

    You can try refreshing the page til it shows up again. Recently a banner caught my interest and missed it, so I did that trick til it was back...

    No I haven't. I blocked the iFrame all together. Same with the "Premium" member icons. I'm going to start working on getting rid of the iNet bar next.
    Don't look for a way out.

    That is for server management. Not for the actual servers.

    you know, people only look at banners when they click on a link and are waiting for the page to load. by the time they try to click on the banner, the page is done loading and the banner is gone

    I would have left the banners because I don't mind them at all. Only reason why I did is to test the feature. I just don't have any will to remove the block. Main reason why I installed the extension is because of the "Premium Member" graphic which gave me premium headaches.

    How? I've only managed to rid of the bar, the background of the bar, and banners. I still have drop downs. Using FFox 0.8 w/ Adblock extention.

    I'm glad that I have helped so many people remove the distractions. There was this one extension that would remove any abject from a webpage. Only remained for one session though. I e-mailed the author and never heard back from him even though it has been over a week.

    Yes, yes, thank you.

    Yah, Nuke Anything (or something like it) is a good one, but I didnt like how it wasn't permanent.

    Just add these urls to your filters. I don't know exactly which one did it but those are all the ones that clean this site right up
