You’ve reached this page because the site you were trying to visit now blocks the FireFox browser.

The Mozilla Foundation and its Commercial arm, the Mozilla Corporation, has allowed and endorsed a web browser than enables users to block major annoyances on the web, use ActiveX and other technologies safely and generally impedes the rights of web site owners to spray your desktop with pop-ups and more easily hijack your computer and install keygrabbers, viruses, trojans and software that enables your computer to become part of a bot-net army that hurls spam around the world. Millions of V1/|gr@ sellers, pr0nographers, predatory loan companies and hackers are thus denied their right to use the internet to perform identity theft, credit card theft and to destroy the usefulness of email as a medium of communication.

While blanket virus block in general is still theft, the real problem is attempts at proper security. Blocking Firefox is the only alternative. Demographics have shown that not only are FireFox users a small percentage of the internet, they also have big noses and few friends and often fail to bathe regularly, therefore blocking FireFox seems to have only minimal financial drawbacks, whereas ending resource theft has tremendous financial rewards for honest, hard-working pornograhic website owners and developers..

Since Firefox actively endorses secure web browsing and is linked to the Thunderbird email program that includes a spam filter the sites linking to this page are now blocking Firefox until secure web browsing ( i.e. botnet theft) is stopped.

Firefox users can simply, of course, set their usage string to be IE using another extension but we’ll pretend that we are living in an alternative universe where that extension doesn’t exist.

If you are offended by the sheer idiocy of the idea of blocking a browser that has 30-40% penetration in large markets like Germany, well, have a laugh, have a beer and get on with your life.

And remember – Adric is watching you, always.

    What a load of crap. The use of ad blockers, prevalent in IE as well as Firefox does not constitute theft. Ad blockers would not be prevalent in the first place were it not for abusive ad practices from greedy obnoxious site owners.

    HELL YEAH!!!11! THOSE SNOTTY FIREFAUX USERS SUCK SWEETY BALLZ! I CHALLENGE THEM TO A FIGHT CUZ I’LL KICK THEIR RAGGITY ASSES.

    PEACE!

    Um… block AdBlock users.

    http://hnjdev.com/test/testing.html

    Test with AdBlock on, then view in a non-adblock browser.

    Oo

    Well, you better start blocking Opera and IE then
    Opera Ad Filter
    Internet Explorer Ad Filter Addon

    and while you’re there, block Windows, Linux, BSD and MacOS because they use the “evil” hosts file which could potentially avoid ads

    LOL! God, I love this article. Great stuff! It’s nice to see a little parody on this after all of the stuff I’ve been reading over the last couple of days. Nice. 🙂

    @Jason
    “Um… block AdBlock users.
    http://hnjdev.com/test/testing.html

    Oh yeah .. that’s real tough to beat, Jason! C’mon, I’ve seen things like that for years now. No problem! Here’s a couple of quick fixes just off the top of my head:
    @@hnjdev.com*/ads/$stylesheet
    … or simply changing the */ads/* filter to */ads/*$~stylesheet

    Hint: you can’t use my own filters against me because they are mine to make and modify … it just doesn’t work! Danny Carlton tried one WAY better than that and I easily beat it. He got angry and decided to block Firefox instead … because he couldn’t beat the EasyList and ABP.

    Doesn’t happen with filterset-G (including exception rules) as of June either – I get the “hello non-adblock user” content. Nice try.

    Hilarious stuff. I especially dug the ‘alternate universe’ theory of accounting for the million plus ways there are to get through a user-agent string detection scheme. Thanks for the chuckles.

    You are hopeless from the beginning, so I’ll keep it for myself.

  9. scannie says:

    Just the best laugh I had today… BTW, is the real site down?

  10. Sigh says:

    This article is shere stupidty, ADS don’t give you virus’ or any other shit claimed by this moron, they mearly pay for the revenue of a site and… well… if you want the internet to become a non-profitable enterprise, keep on truck’n.

    @Rick, I don’t really care much about it, but couldn’t they just make a flash program that spews out the ads, thereby bypassing w/e hold you have on the browser?
    Either way, enjoy the limited popularity you have now, I assure you that once you’ve reached the “Critical Threshold” advertising companies will start finding ways around adblock…

  11. Sigh says:

    Although, ennui, sigh.
    Actually, now the idea seems interesting enough to pursue.
    I was meaning that the site contains many flash “capsules” that are written to interpret and display the HTML coding, to advocate against their blocking it’s simple to make the site use the capsules on all text, including non-adversting material.
    Or even, since the internet will eventually lead there, just keep it a 100% flash website.

    Heck, technically speaking, what is stopping anyone from simply not making any markings separating the “ads” from the “images”. Or from the advertising company from establishing a upload to the server and feeding the images that way?

    Hell, they could just capsule the site with the ads, meaning that parts of the site are also parts of the ads.

    Or, if they wanted to be really technical and overly complicated… they probally could use Javascript draw functions to “paint” advertisments in :P… and the rest of the site why not.

    Or could rig the site so that each and every link redirects to an advertiser who then issues a popup that opens the link you wanted to (Probally could intercept the link before the redirect so a rotating encyption why not)

    As I see it, it looks like you arrived only to say “I found an Exploit NANA-NANA-NANA” and quite frankly, making a blocking program that stops “most”* ads isn’t that big of an accomplishment. Thats like saying “I hacked into my sisters computer”, they didn’t have a great deal of security around the display of ads in the first place.

    However, even if each of my ideas are easily deterable(?), I am certain there are people smarter than I who could find an ingenious method against yours.

    Sigh, now I’m bored again.

    *Just a note, I stated “most” because the similarities between advertising allows a single exploit to block a great many ads. The idea is that if a person was experianced enough in programming to create such a program, that it’s creation wouldn’t be “anything big” because minor effort yeilds large results. (Of course that gets into technicallities of minor effort, but just bear with it). The “big” part occurs when bypassing advertising that doesn’t work with all the previously tried-and-true methods.

    Umm, you can block ads in both IE and Opera, why just block Firefox? Seems kind of pointless to me.
