I already had geekzone whitelisted and the ads are appearing. But it still says to whitelist geekzone for the quick reply box to appear.

 

 

Also, is the +1 button removed now ?

there were a few threads on this but they seem to have been deleted/removed

 

 

 

the quick reply and the +1 relate to the message you are getting

Refresh the page twice and it should go away. If you don't see them back, clear cookies.

If still don't see then check for privacy blockers, hosts file blocks, or DNS services that may block some stuff.

Let me know the result.

Tried from Opera & Firefox by disabling adblocker, clearing cookies, refreshing the page and also from Edge (no addons or nothing has been installed, and the first time trying edge), but the same result.

 

Will try from home computer tonight.

All looking good now in the same computer, same browser session. Didn't do anything after my previous attempt.

 

+1 button is visible too.

Everything was working fine up until yesterday - GZ was whitelisted, I was seeing ads, I had the quick reply box and the +1 button.

 

Today I am seeing some ads and am back to a mess of HTML filling the spaces where other ads should be, I have lost the qiick reply box and +1 button, and I'm getting the orange bar saying that I have an adblocker enabled.

 

The thing is I haven't changed a single setting, and GZ is still whitelisted (I checked).

My GZ is also preventing the plus one, and quick reply again this weekend. Although white listed in AB+ and on a mobile version of safari?

I've just started getting this message as well, I have Geekzone whitelisted with uBlock Origin and Ghostery. I last posted a message about an hour ago and it was working fine then. I'm running Chrome 52.0.2743.116 m.

It seems to be random.

 

I just replied to a message using the quick reply box, but two other threads then gave me the adblocker message and no quick reply box. Then I opened another thread and had the +1 button and quick reply box back again. Then I opened this thread and am back to the adblockder message with no quick reply box.

 

All in the same session over no more than 10 minutes.

 

This is probably the last message I'm going to post on the issue, it's just becoming annoying.

 

EDIT: and once I posted this message, the thread reappeared with the quick reply box and +1 buttons back again!

I'm still having this problem, it just seems to be Chrome on Windows for me that has the problem. Firefox on the same PC works so it's not something in the hosts file or the network, and Chrome on my Ubuntu Gnome laptop works fine too (and it uses a shared profile from the Windows box). I've tried clearing the cache and cookies in Chrome for Windows.

 

You can see in the below screenshot that I have the ad blocker disabled for Geekzone:

Scrap what I said about Firefox, it's started doing it in that browser too. The initial load was fine but once I started browsing around Geekzone I started getting the orange banner (even though I could see the ads). I've also tried Chrome in incognito mode with all extensions disabled and it still complains and stops the quick reply etc. I've checked my hosts file and there were no extra entries there and also tried disabling eSet antivirus in case it was messing with web traffic and it was still a problem. I don't think it's an ISP or gateway problem since my laptop (on the same network) works fine.

 

I'm at a loss to explain it, are there any other sites which use a similar ad blocking technique that I could test with?
