Thanks for the tip on getting rid of youchoose, it is really slow on my net connection. Won't have a chance to try it until late in the week, hope it works, that thing is really annoying and really makes the pages slow.

Not sure what all the whining is about I've never had any problems with the page/pages loading slow, I do use Firefox instead of IE but even in the instances where I have been using IE I have never experienced any slow loading problems. I think we are looking at a red herring here.

Noting pisses in my post toasties like getting something I didn't ask for, then having to weasel fart a "fix" to get rid of it.

can you tell I'm not a kinder-gentler conservative?
I'm all for a company making a buck, I've been known to do just that when the ned arrises, but I gotta tellya, this hacked me off.

You have to become "root" (you can do that using "sudo" command in OSX terminal window, it will ask for a password).

Then edit file /etc/hosts. Add line that reads:
127.0.0.1 www.youchoose.com
Make sure the name of the website matches what is in the url of whatever this widget is loaded from (I can't see it so I don't know the exact name)

Alternatively, download Firefox and a few extensions (AdBlock would do it). It is a much better browser than Safari (heck, anything is a better browser than Safari)

Brak....thanks for the tip on Adblock. That was so easy a mod could do it! You choose is all gone and the nice thing about adblock is that you can JUST tell it EXACTLY the things you want to block and nothing else will get filtered. Very cool!

Yep, adblock is one of the best addons out there. Another one is flashblock - allows you to not run flash animations/ads etc unless you want them to run (click on the arrow in the middle and its on).

There are a few more, but those are for more hardcore privacy freaks like me Cookie jar is one of those.

Did my system finally delete the add at the bottom? or was it removed?

This thing is back in some of the forums, is that the intent? or just forgotten.

Found it in the general area among others..

Marty...it was missed in a few spots and admin went back in late this AM and re-fixed for different sections. I have it blocked so cannot test. Is it fixed for you now??
