Another way:

ipchains -A output -p tcp -d --dport 80 -j REJECT

We need more links like this... it makes me happy to know I'm spitting in the eye of Doubleclick.

You may as well go the whole hog and install Proxomitron or Webwasher to get rid of all ads and tracking tricks.
Takes a minute and you won`t have to deal with frigging pop-us ever again either.

Damnit, i forgot the http:// in those links.
You can work it out.

Here's how to stop X10 popups (Cookie lasts 14 years but the page says 30 days):​1​ m

Here's a page that details how to block all traffic from specific hosts. They have a large list of ad servers that you can use.

I submitted the DoubleClick ad blocker link as well as the previous two but Drew didn't post them (Does he like x10 ads?)

2001-08-18 04:52:22 PM has a nifty little program to block double click. "zero click"

I use Cookie Pal from Kookaburra software. Very good program.

Maybe if you dessicate it like this old lady.

I wonder if there is a correlation between

[spam & cookies sales]
[experience (or internet hours) an internet person has]

Hypothesis: The more a person is on the internet, the lower spam & cookies sales are?

Uhhh, sorry to burst your bubble but this does *not* block doubleclick ads like the title says. This merely prevents doubleclick from knowing your browsing habits. That title should be edited.
2001-08-18 08:55:09 PM  
Just block the ad servers themselves, no tracking, no loading, less bandwidth. Updated often.
