    Re: Code to KILL NORTON?

    The other day a friend took a look at my site
    on a test hard drive he had set up with Windows 2000 and the latest (I think) Norton.

    All my ads were gone!! Every last one of them, so I am told.

    I wonder does anyone know where I can get script source code that I can put in the Head or Body of my web pages that will KILL NORTON???

    I use a JavaScript frame buster to break out of frames at the end of my Head. Works well on two notorious metasearch engine sites that I have tested it on. Haven't had any problems with it that I am aware of. So I am not opposed to the judicious use of JavaScript.

    Or do I have to go with redirects? Or a warez site?

    Any suggestions or alternatives, anyone?

    The only way this will ever stop is for the affiliates and merchants to pressure the networks to stop employing data mining applications as they've set up side businesses selling off clickstream data to the IAB/DMA Adwhores. Find the reason all anti-malware detect/removal and most popup blocker programs, firewalls all zero in on LS BF Performics & CJ practices for over a year.

    Hints:

    1. The datamine shoppers habits for sale to Adwhores.

    2. They monitized directly the popup BHO's who hijack and destroy systems.

    3. The house and turn a blind eye to a hord of sleezebag affiliates getting paid to hijack and destroy systems with their incents, drive-bys & freebee bundling.

    4. The security holes opened up by piss poor programed BHO backdoor trojans can be exploited for CC and identity theft.

    5. Majority of Phisher sites caught are involved in affiliate spam and some with network merchant datafeeds hooked to hosted carts for fresh CC#s harvesting.

    You can bet that some practice, not related to operating the affiliate tracking network, has been refused to be dropped from the networks revenue model triggers all this Norton blocking. Do we really think Norton and others contacted by the network legal department haven't replied with valid reasons in 12 months? Do those Norton installed systems still show eBates and other BHO popups if infested? If they do.... then the networks might use special sales tracking for BHO's or the income gets passed over to the BHO's as the only affiliates capable of force setting a cookie.

    What does IAB/DMA stand for?

    Who are the IAB/DMA Adwhores?

    I am beginning to see some light.

    Thank you,

    I recently came across http://www.adblock.org

    Interesting site imho

    Seems the key may be to create a redirect script on your website that makes it look like a URL is served from your page instead of an ad-serving provider's site.

    What do you think?

    Between the IAB (Internet Advertising Bureau) and the DMA (Direct Marketing Alliance) all the major players in e-mail spamming, list brokering, info scraping for the Telemarketers and direct mailers are members. Also the 3rd party AM firms controlling the 500-600 parasite friendly merchant programs are members of this esteemed group of Adwhores as are the likes of TopMoxie and other name brand BHO's.

    Yes, I agree, http://www.adblock.org does seem to be a very interesting site.

    It will be some time before I get to study it as I am in the process of moving and putting my web site on autopilot until I can get things reorganized.

    OS2WarpLinks is my first web site so I am still unfamiliar with the techniques of creating redirect scripts but it seems sensible to me.

    Thanks for the link, Mike!

    The AdBlock Detection Script Demonstration
    at http://www.adblock.org looks, at first glance, to be potentially very valuable
    in educating web site visitors about the detrimental effects of ad blockers.

    I will be studying the script and installation procedures further.

    Thanks, Mike,
