Banner ads - how to reset?
« on: Fri Aug 03, 2012 - 13:34:54 »
Apparently something got picked up by the website banner ads and is trying to display forbidden content. Every one right now has a blocking message on it. Since all I see is the blocker I do not even know what offending site is.

I have rebooted, logged out and back in, cleaned out the history and cache, and it keeps coming back up. Even tried a different browser.

Any ideas?

Is it just the ad that is blocked, or the whole page?

It is the banner ad and all the ads in the middle of the page.  What I see is the screen from the network admin saying the content was blocked and potentially illegal.  (federal gov't network)


The posts are normal.

Well, I'm not sure what to tell you. Can you live without the ads? ::wink::

I would love to live without the ads.

This morning they seem to be back to normal.  If they had continued as they were, I could not be here as it would eventually trigger a visit from the cyber security office accusing me of trying (repeatedly) to access illegal content.

Their investigation of the ads would probably result in this whole website being blocked.

Ah, I see. Sorry I couldn't help. If it happens again send a PM to Admin and be sure to tell him of the consequences.
