I was browsing /pol/ on my phone and I went to an archived thread. This popped up. A fucking video?

It just buffered, never loaded.

I checked out an archived thread on /c/ and there was some strange ad there.

I'm guessing Hiro has started putting bad ads in archived threads now.
>>
>>435113
I guess I'll have to find a way to block ads on my phone now. Banner ads never bothered me enough to try
>>
>>435103
just reported this to crystal, hopefully will get updated to block them

fucking shady ass ad servers, hiro
>>
And they're surprised that we use adblock. This is why, even when some site writes a big post begging to turn it off, I refuse.
>>
I looked at some more archived threads on various boards, and yes, the bad ads are there too.

Hiroyuki was forced out of 2ch because of all the dodgy spyware and other shit he was doing.

Jap courts were after him so he had to give up 2ch and run away.

>>435369
It's the history of 2ch.

It's why 2ch ended up being owned by an American, Hiroyuki gave it to him to avoid all the legal action he was facing in Japan.

For 4chan's entire fucking history there wasn't a single ad besides the 2 small header banners and 1 small footer header, and now this shit? Fuck you, hiroshima.
Isn't the pass and J-list money enough? I always disabled adblock on 4chan, but now I'm gonna enable it just because of that annoying out-of-place bullshit that looks like a fucking XSS attack
>>
>>435496
I remember when 4chan went without ads for a while because moot found out the ads he was using were playing audio for some people.

Now with Hiroyuki in charge, when people report his new ads are redirecting to malware sites

The reason we're hearing more about this from mobileposters is because iOS Safari only recently got ad blocking. It can potentially fuck your desktop up as well if you're not blocking ads.

I like that it creates a high barrier of entry for sanctimonious faggots who haven't always been using an ad blocker of some kind. If you're stupid enough to still be supporting the 1990s 'ecommerce' business model with banner ads then you deserve all the malware you get.

I allowed ads here because they're not very intrusive and I like the site, but this has made me wary enough to block them. Haven't had a complaint against Hiro so far, but this is straight-up bad practice.

On the plus side, look at all the vertical space I'm saving.

Websites need ad revenue. How the hell do you expect them to pay for servers, etc? You think that it's free?

4chan has run off of banner ads for years. If anything, this will cut revenue as many people, myself included, will throw on adblock to stop these ads with audio. Fuck that.

What adblockers do you use? Maybe 4chan X and/or Oneechan blocks this content.
>utorrent
Get rid of this.

>>440597
Now, you should probably clear your system.
>>
>>440602
>What adblockers do you use?
Only Adblock Plus but it's disabled so I don't think it has to do with that.

>Get rid of this.
Why? I thought utorrent 2.2.1 was still good to use?
>>
>>440605
>utorrent 2.2.1 was still good to use?
It is, but no versions beyond that one should ever be used. Qbittorrent has been working pretty well for me though.

>>440607
Noted.
Also, how do you see if epcm is running? I want to be sure that it's really gone.

Why not though?
>>
>>440607
3.1.3 is fine if you disable all the bullshit
>>
>>440611
Because after utorrent 2.2.1 they started running ads and shit.

>>440602
Also can confirm that 4chanX is the one blocking the ad: https://github.com/ccd0/4chan-x/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

Because the archive sucks up the website and all the coding therein *at that time* you dense cunts. Do you really expect codebase changes made here to magically update on the archives?

Fuck.
>>
>>440621
don't act like a smartass if you have no fucking idea what you're talking about.
hiro added it to archived threads deliberately, the ad script is actually inside the big "this thread is archived" message at the top of the page.
>>
I've already reported this to several sites and authorities. Deliberately spreading redirects and injecting malware, even through ads, is a violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse act, and since Hiro's not American, he's started a big issue.

>>441457
>add redditurls (435103/what-is-this-shit)
That was a retarded change nobody wanted and asked for, it's irrelevant and not needed. Why it even exists is beyond me.
>keep threads for a week for better search engine indexing
Except that's not the purpose for the archive.
>make site more userfriendly
>make accidental dox less likely by removing email/subject and stripping images
[Settings] should be disabled by default, people should lurk before participating. Adding autonoko and removing emails was also a big minus.
>accidental dox
Lol, you can't find out shit with emails unless you know how.
>trying to save bandwidth by making small changes
And that's bad how?
>>
>>441517
>That was a retarded change nobody wanted and asked for, it's irrelevant and not needed. Why it even exists is beyond me.
All teh big websites use it because search engines rank the keywords in the URL higher
>Except that's not the purpose for the archive.
It's there to collect pageviews that would otherwise go to the 3rd party archives, and it's even more effective than changing the URL
>Lol, you can't find out shit with emails unless you know how.
You underestimate the power of people using the same email/handle for everything.
>And that's bad how?
At first he dissed all suggestions from /g/, but before selling it he had tried all kinds of optimizations.
>>
>>441404
So I updated Nightly and it stopped happening.
>>
>>435103
Whenever I look on pretty much any archived thread, a message pops up for downloading Adobe Flash player. It locks up my browser so I have to quit it. Knowing it's a scam, I can't click "yes".

Is this Hiro's way of scaring normies away from the site?
>>
I had one that didn't do anything but clicking on it would take you to wix.com. Another just buffered a video for eternity.
