    Blocked Adverts Splash showing in wrong situation·

    Hello,

    I'm finding that I'm being told I'm joining the dark side when browsing the site from home in that I'm blocking ads which I'm not and if I refresh on the same thread it loads.

    Are there banner problems resulting in the display of the space filler?

    Screenshot attached.

    I've also noticed that when i browse using camino at work (since Safari is fluffed using our smoothwall proxy) even with ad blocking turned off the ads are still blocked.

    I'm browsing from home so there's definitely no filtering in place. At work, some ads work, some don't, similar kind of behaviour to be honest.

    Hang on folks, I'm without being rude, not interested in problems seeing ads from work for the sake of filters etc as it will only confuse and convolute the thread.

    I am merely outlining an apparent issue whereby a normal unfiltered home internet connection isn't rendering all of the adverts as it should.

    I have tweaked it now so it should be less likely to appear.

    Cheers
