Its seems to be back to what it was. Not as fast as before the petition, but its a good cause. Thanks Sailnet, and thanks Cam. (now see if you can get it limited to the main page)

I just added the youchoose site to my restricted sites in IE Internet options and it doesn't show up anymore. Really fast page loading too.

I am using Windows Vista:

1. Select Tools from the top menu bar
2. Select Internet Options
3. Select Security
4. Select Restricted Sites
5. Select Sites
6. Type in the address where it says to "Add this Website to the zone:"
7. Click on ADD
8. Click on Apply

and you are done. IE might need to be restarted for the change to take effect.


Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip!

Actually, it doesn't work under IE6 - the stupid software still loads the widget - but I've just downloaded IE7 and waddya know.. no more YouChoose!!

That's great - now the rest of us get to choose!
