    Google Content Blocker enances your enjoyment of all the AdSense ads you'll see on Google top-ranked scraper sites.

    C'mon...you'll love it!

    For a second, I didn't catch the forum this was in.

    Also for a second, I thought this was the latest from Google. Just shows that we never know what to expect from Google!

    Now that's a creative use of the web....

    Frequently Asked Questions
    How does Google Content Blocker work?
    C'mon man, don't insult my intelligence. How does it work?
    What type of Web content is blocked?
    What if I use this along with an ad blocker?
    What if I click on a page that has no ads?
    Does Google keep track of the content that's blocked?
    I'm an advertiser. How can I get more people to use this valuable tool?
    How does Google Content Blocker work?
    You're probably too dumb to understand the technicalities, but we'll tell you anyway. We install special top-secret proprietary software on your system. When you browser to a Web site, this software examines the document. Ads are displayed, and everything else is hidden.

    C'mon man, don't insult my intelligence. How does it work?
    OK, OK. Here's a white paper that describes the process in detail: Google Content Blocker White Paper (PDF)

    What type of Web content is blocked?
    How many times do we have to tell you? Everything is blocked except the ads. It's not rocket science. One more time. Repeat after me: If it's an ad, it's not blocked. If it's not an ad, it's blocked. Got that?

    What if I use this along with an ad blocker?
    You figure it out, Einstein. You'll get nothing. Not a goddamned thing. A white page with nothing on it. Zilch. Nada. Nothingness. Only morons use an ad blocker.

    What if I click on a page that has no ads?
    A Web site with no ads? What do you think this is, 1991? The chances of that happening are very small. In such a case, we will insert some randomly selected Google AdSense ads so you'll have something to read.

    Does Google keep track of the content that's blocked?
    Of course we do. It goes into our database along with every site you've ever visited or even thought about visiting. As always, we strongly encourage you to read our Privacy Policy to be fully informed about how your confidentiality is protected.

    I'm an advertiser. How can I get more people to use this valuable tool?
    Google has established business relationships with some of the leading spyware companies. Our partners are working diligently to patch their software so Google Content Blocker is installed automatically. Within 4-6 months, 92% of all computers in the world will have Google Content Blocker installed. Then, for all intents and purposes, the Web will be completely content-free.

    Privacy and Google Content Blocker
    Google is committed to collecting every bit of data that it possibly can, and storing it forever. You just never know when it might be useful. We recognize that privacy is an important issue, but we've gotten so pervasive that we don't even need to be concerned about it. It's not like you're going to stop using Google, right? Therefore, we didn't even think about your privacy when we designed and built Google Content Blocker -- not for a single second. But we had to write this stupid privacy policy page anyway, just because everyone else does it. It's not like anyone will ever read it.

    If you want privacy, go into the bathroom and lock the door. You ain't gonna get in on the Web, so don't kid yourself. We pretty much know everything there is to know about you -- and it's pretty boring. Get a life, dude.

    I hired some programmers in India to write an Java applet to block Google Content blocker. The whole project is funded by the money I received from one Nigerian General. So for a limited time, I am giving away the source codes for free to webmasters of content sites (sorry Leader). Interested? PM me for details. If I decide to sell it for a price, I'll sure have an affiliate program in LinkShutter network managed by wizards from EConWorks.

    Psssssss: Do not tell the WMW guys. They have G-Moles posing as newbie posters.

    When reading the posts under the "NewPosts" Menu, how can you tell which forum they are in. Either I missed it, or there is no way of telling,

    Ruth,
    You can't tell from the "New Posts," AFAIK. But, once you get to the screen where you can actually read the post/thread, there's breadcrumbs under the main header area (to the left of where it says "Welcome [Username]").
