Hi,

I run Firefox 1.5 with the extension NoScript. When I web into TSG, I am getting a notification from NoScript to either allow or temporarily allow the Javascript for burstnet.com to execute.

What exactly does the Javascript for burstnet.com do, and should I only allow it temporarily for TSG and not for all websites, or allow it for all websites?

Thanks for any information on this matter, as it just so happens I no nothing about burstnet.com.

I also use noscript, FF 1.0.7 here, but in clicking thru the TSG forum this morning, I'm not seeing burstnet as an element.(I configure NoScript to not automatically display notifications, so I may have missed it in the past)
I have seen it at several other sites I visit and leave it blocked just out of a general policy of 'if I see no need for it....it stays blocked'. :cool:

Add these to your hosts file and it will block the sites.

127.0.0.1 survey.burstmedia.com
127.0.0.1 burstmedia.com
127.0.0.1 web.burstmedia.com
127.0.0.1 www.burstmedia.com
127.0.0.1 websurvey.burstmedia.com

Hewee-wouldn't the HOSTS file leave blank spaces in place of the ads? There is another way (in Firefox at least) that removes them and makes the post column wider to fill up the space- but surely Mike doesn't like us posting about how to block the ads.

Yes brendandonhu it will leave a blank space where the ad box space is. Well if firefox as has abother way that works and takes away the space the ad took then that is even better.

Well posting about hosts files is all over this forum and ad blockers that are used so people that use them are also blocking ads to this and other sites.

I can come here with out seeing ads but I have all the blank spaces.
But I like helping out so I pay to have the ads remove here at TSG and have done so from also day one that Mike started the no ads for paid members.
