So guys, I'm tired of seeing Wahoha and 2leep ads everywhere I turn. I've been trying to block them using adblock plus filters, but can't manage to make a filter that gets rid of them completely. Am I the only one annoyed by these damn blog redirect sites? Seriously, I'm so incredibly annoyed by these things I don't know what to do anymore. Anyone know of any problems?

For the record, googling doesn't help. Since these things are all over the place, they end up with high pageranks and pretty much drown out all hopes of getting rid of the damn thing.

Ok, so, apparently no one knows what I'm talking about, here's an example:

http://nuffy.net/misc/pics/craziest-tattoos.html

That set of ads up at the top is wahoha. Apparently not enough people think they actually are ads to add them to the adblock plus filters. Either that, or they're like me and can't figure out how exactly to filter the damn things without breaking every website they're on.

I dont have issues with ads popping up on me everwhere. But then again, I dont randomly surf and im careful about what pages I visit. Keep in mind, there is no such thing as a pop up blocker that blocks all your popups-its virtually impossible to do. Its also possible you have adaware or other malware on your computer, you may want to run a good anti virus program such as AVAST or visit thispart of our website. Also, a good resource on keeping your computer secure check out this section.

*sigh* this isn't a problem with pop-ups or malware. Being that I work in IT as a service technician I've learned to identify malware. I currently am running Avast Internet Security and scan with Malwarebytes and Super Antispyware weekly. This is NOT a spyware problem. This is an internet annoyance you will notice if you surf the web with services like Stumbleupon (which I do). I have encountered this on many computers, including multiple computers at work, which I have ceritifed as clean. This is not a pop-up problem, it is simply annoying ads. I use Adblock Plus and I am trying to figure out how to block it, that is all. These sites are the only sites I have problems with. I see the ads all the time and I can't block them, I've been trying to, but doing so often causes the site to get messed up. I tried explaining this earlier, but I think it got deleted when an admin moved my topic to this board. I promise I know what I'm talking about T.T

For the record, I am simply trying to figure out how to make a filter which will remove these damn ads, hell, even block the whole website, without breaking the website I'm on.

Umm, I'm not seeing any adds at the top of nuffy.net. The flashing pix under the "Crazy Accidents" section is a bit distracting though.

well, like I said, unfortunatly, pop up blockers are not 100% and those adds arent even popups-they are incorporated into the site which makes them next to impossible to remove (to my knowledge)

I use admunch and have never seen an ad anywhere I didn't want one in 7 years. :whistle: I'd never heard of these.

I was reluctant to visit a site that might be a problem, but I took a chance with my Linux netbook. I used Firefox with NoScript and most of the ads appear to be blocked. I would assume that a good Hosts file would also help block them.

Yep, NoScript is the answer. No visible ads when visiting that Nuffy site.
Killed the very annoying flash Crazy Accidents or whatever by simply right clicking on it and choosing
to block in AdblockPlus.

@ Animal: I did a bit of looking at Admuncher - does this really do all it claims to? If so, I'm downloading! :D
