When I browsed over to Geekzone just now I got a splash screen saying it looked like I'm using an ad blocker. Its a nice idea, reminding people that advertising helps pay for the site, except that I'm not using an ad blocker...
Anyone else getting false positives? Or false negatives? Or did I imagine it all?

Yes, I have had this also. I am also not using Adblock of any kind. It's implementation is really annoying as well, very slow to pop-up. I was typing this reply when it just jumped over the whole page. Same thing happened when uploading the image to the gallery, was uploading and it took over the whole screen. If this is to be used, it needs to be much faster.

This is what I'm getting Click to see full size. Using Firefox, no adblock of any kind.

heh I just clicked on this link to read the thread and bam the adblock window popped up, appropriate timing! No adblock here as its my work machine and can't install ANYTHING on it!  IE11 on Windows 7 Enterprise.

I am getting false positives today as well. I do have an ad-blocker installed but have had GZ white listed on it for long time.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Bloody annoying, if it keeps showing up I'll just quit geekzone altogether.

Talk about going to far.



Hmm, what to write...

freitasm: For those with false positive, are you using Ghostery or other such software?


Not at all, Just windows 10 with a default installation of Edge

Adblock plus with it disabled for geekzone..

Although I notice, when you see the splash initially, and click the button it goes away and you can use the site fine

 

 

 

But without adblock disabled, you can't see the site at all
