    Adblock Plus

    Someone posted the information about this site. Went to see what it was, asked my techy brother about it, go ahead and install it. Did just that and now the ads that have always been at the top section of our board is EMPTY.
    Thank you to the person giving us the heads up on this feature.

    I use it too and found that it does really block ads on this site and and on a the Decorah eagles UStream site I have watched -- very useful!!

    Do they have something to get rid of trashey e-mails. All of a sudden I have gotton so many of these that I don't know what to do. This is on my ipad. I have never gone to any of these sites. Also there is no unserscribe button on these sites.
    Thanks in advance.

    The original thread got moved by the moderator to where she thought it was more appropriate to have it in located in the QB Help Center:

    I have watched many hours of the Decorah chicks as they grew & fledged. Terrible that they had such a bug problem this year.

    So happy to see some of the members watch the live eagle cams. I have been doing this for years and just love watching the chicks grow up but sad to see the fledge. You may intrested in The Virginia Wildlife in Virginia. They have 3 live cams going and have bear cubs on one and chat room. I am sure you would enjoy it.

    Do NOT unsubscribe on trashy emails (spam) - it will just alert the sender that yours is a LIVE email and they will sell your address and you will get even more spam. Set up filters if you can, to send the spam to the trash, and just delete the rest.

    Norfolk's Botanical Gardens also have them for our eagles. Pretty cool

    This is true never unsubcribe it's lets them know it's a live email address and they then sell it to other spam sites... Your email whichever one you use has a spam folder, once you send or mark the email as spam it will be sent there instead of your email.

    Sadly, I have not found a way to stop them from sending me the Viagra specials on my iPad. Is there an Adblock for the iPad? I even get offers of foreign young ladies on my icloud address.

    I put the Firefox browser on my Android & loaded the Ad Block Plus from there. I don't know if that will work for an I Pad tho.
