In Adblock Plus I've chosen "Disable on Modaco.com" but the Modaco warnings don't go away, why?

Thanks

nah, you can stick around as far as i'm concerned...

just turns you into a total freeloader thats all!!! :D :angry:

it is a tricky one. after all, the net's raison d'etre is 'free'dom of information isnt it? but when the actual cost (to you) of using a site is ads, does it really cost you? i appreciate it may slow the download of your latest (as yet unreleased in the UK) Hollywood blockbuster or that latest MP3 download from that dodgy russian site but i see your point... why should anyone pay for anything that is usefull.... :D

One more person playing the devils' advocate :

usually, to surf on the web, i use my GPRS connection, or, when not available, the GSM Data Connection. As i live in a country where GSM operators are.... well... depnding on the user, no 'illimited data plan' is available. So i pay for each byte i'm downloading.

So, when using the web on my GSM, i disable picture downloading, and use AdBlocker to save some precious bytes.

Am I a bad user ?

It depends on how much you use the site I guess, If you aren't viewing the adds is it worth paying for the Add free version? Or if you are really tight, pay for Modaco Plus and get all those wonderful free benefits :D

i see your point and have to concede that it is a good one...

In the instance of a forum, perhaps if you are a willing helper and visit the site on a PC connected with a 'normal' broadband with all the ads glaring at you then you address the karma balance of not seeing them on the phone.

Perhaps if you use the phone as your PC's internet connection then an element of charity is understood and we recognise your genuine 'need' to clip out unwanted data. I'd like to think that would be the prevailing ethos... but only if you help others!!! :D

the problem i will always face is that i dont have any moral highground! i dont pay for Modaco access and in truth dont intend to (sorry Paul). I visit every day (sometimes twice...) and leave the ads on. I like to get involved in any thread i can actively contribute to and will answer questions when I know the solution - to me thats the whole point of a forum.

so its always up to you. Help/dont help, Ads/No Ads, Subscribe/dont subscribe.... if only all of life were this simple! :D

Fortunately the ad's on Modaco aren't as intrusive as many other sites that I visit, so I guess I can live with it on here.

I have no problem at all with banner ads and the such, and quite often do actually click on them from sites such as yours. However, recently I have been prompted to install AdBlockerPlus at home solely due to the massive increase in the number of Vibrant style ads. I really cannot stand these style of ads, and as such can only consider unblocking sites that do not use this style of ads. They are so intrusive, and it is not what anyone wants.

I do use IE at work, however, in which it is possible to simply block the source of the Vibrant style ads, without affecting the normal banner & pop style ads. I wish it were possible to do the same in Firefox, as I do feel like I may be missing out on useful ads by using ABP. (Any tips on how to do this are very welcome).

Fortunately, most of my use of MoDaCo is whilst at work during the day. B) This is the first time I have noticed the ABP message on this site, despite having had ABP installed at home for about a month.

However, if you were to decide against the Vibrant style ads, a front page notice would be good, such that I (and others) could then add MoDaCo to my ABP white list.
