How do you remove sponsered content from PCA

  Govan1x 13:12 07 Oct 2017

Getting really fed up with it not sure if it is just me that gets it or not but cant seem to be able to remove it.

Also getting it on other peoples posts as well occasionally.

Now just tried the new Firefox screenshot program and find it so easy to use. 10 seconds after taking the screenshot you can post it on here. it is that easy to use

I've clicked on a few so that PCA get the revenue now I block the image using Adblock.

as they add new ones I click to review then block again using adblock. Currently have 40 items block so as to make this site useable.

Ok FB I have been using ABP and it does not stop it or if it does it just comes back. Just tried Ghostery and not a lot of good.

Have to draw the line somewhere when it opens in random posts and is getting a bit of a nuisance. Will try yours later on to day once I remove the others.

I never heard anyone else complain about it so thought that maybe I was the only one getting the problem.

You are not the only one. I too am getting Sponsored Content on some posts. I use Firefox with AdBlocker but the odd one still pops up.

I use uBlock Origin both for Chrome and FireFox. Works a treat once you work out how to block content.

I had to perform the blocking in each Forum separately with UBlock Origin

No luck with your one either Zak.

Get Bitdefender – Save up to AUD 40

And misdirected sponsored content at that.

Yes it is annoying when you get it in some of your posts or some of the posts that you are reading.

It is not just Bitdefender but other adds as well. lets hope someone can find a cure.

Sponsored content links are just one of the ways we try to monetise the site and therefore the forums. Without such advertising deals we couldn't keep the forum going without charging for it.
