My adblock is gone. Or rather, they're here. The ads, that is.

When BGG came back online after the outage last night, I noticed that I didn't have adblock anymore. I'm posting this here in Chit Chat rather than a more official forum because I'm not too broken up about it. To be honest, I wasn't sure why I had been receiving adblock in the first place, because it costs $25/year and I had only been paying $15/year. But I wasn't complaining. I suppose whatever happy glitch was allowing me to block ads got fixed by whatever Aldie did during that downtime. On the upside, I can now experience the joys of this Evony thing that everyone's been talking about. I'm just wondering, did anyone else experience the same thing?

Since I've been using Firefox I frequently forget that there are even ads on the internet. I feel slightly bad that I'm not contributing financially to BGG. I'll try and remedy that when I have a job again. I'm not suffering through the torture of blinking ads, though.

I think Jeff's account has adblock, even though he didn't pay for it. We thought it was because both of our contributions came from the same PayPal account, which would put it over the adblock requirements.

Edit: We use Firefox, too. There are still banner ads on this site, though.

Firefox addblock plugin

Make sure that you disable it when viewing BGG though!

But what about the Space Project girl who's on my banner ad right now? I'm sure she's no Evony girl, but you can see her belly button.

Okay, I have now installed adblock plus and disabled it on BGG. In other words, I have blocked ads on the whole rest of the internet to make up for getting ads back on BGG. Sounds about right.

I use adblock and noscript. Prevents active x scripts from running as well, and there is alot of pop up nonsense and adds that can't run if noscript is running.

I think the previous "Cvony" Queen was only mostly real! She was hotter, though, although the Space Project babes are pretty foxy too. I dig green chicks!
