Angry anoying popups

I went to Nerds R Us for help...

I had a terrible time with the ad bombardment when Spey pages changed ownership. I asked for help, received quite a bit of technical advice, quite a few ”if you don’t like it, leave” comments from members, and so I went to my local computer geezers who spent a couple of hours setting up an ad-busting web browser just for Spey Pages. At the time the new masters were telling us ”we’ll fix this, that, yadayadayada”. So I fixed it myself.

if you use IE or Firefox

it is very easy to turn on "tracking protection lists" which will block all syndicated ad content.

enjoy!

Pop ups

I don't get them. Kaspersky Internet security blocks them.

If you see the pop ups again please take a screenshot of them and post it here. We do not run any pop up ads on the forum so there could be something else on your computer/ browser to make them appear.

If you use Safari on Mac, go to Preferences, then Privacy and enable AdBlock.
All ads will be gone including Sponsors like rod and lines companies.

The real reason I blocked ads on my Mac is NOT ads in the upper corner coming form a traditional supporters like Sage, Rio, CF Burkheimer ( tackle companies) but those a the bottom coming from big corps like Comcast ( Xfinity), Geico etc.

The real reason ( I believe) we have a new owner of the spaypages are big corps ads. Before the side has changes hands I bethink it was self sustained , no ?
