Malware is software that uses your computer in a way you don't want it to. AN does not do that, it does exactly what it says in the description.
>>
>>62422144
It's kind of a grey area since ads can literally be malware. The user has absolutely no input on what an ad does so it can't have an intent for that action.
>>
>>62422181
AN does not run ads, it only downloads them.
>>
>>62422113
Why is it so easy to manipulate /pol/? There's already a small cottage industry devoted to squeezing money from these guys.
>>
>>62422185
that would be nice, yes. Ads aren't just references to other sites though.
>>
>>62422206
And AN simply downloads the link using XHR, receiving its content as text. It does not run any javascript, it does not render any HTML or images.
>>
>>62422217
Okay, so it'll just miss a bunch of the worse ones. That's a good way to go about it. Sounds like something you could possibly handle in a userscript rather than an addon.
>>
>>62422251
I'm not sure about that. I think greasemonkey's cross-site XHR still includes X-Requested-With HTTP field, which would make it quite trivial for Ad provider to discard those requests.

why are adnetworks allowed to distribute malware then?
>>
>>62422629
Because no regulations.
>>
>>62422629
Who's going to stop them? The people who they pay or the ones who pay them?
>>
>>62422217
It will probably be easy to kill, then.
Don't just have something that's runs on click, have a script on the destination page to make sure people actually visited it.

It's working...

http://archive.is/2017.09.12-005701/http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-11/startling-anecdote-about-online-advertising-restoration-hardware

One wonders how long before all retailers - most of whom are notoriously strapped for revenues and profits courtesy of Amazon - and other "power users" of online advertising, do a similar back of the envelope analysis, and find that they, like RH, are getting a bang for only 2% of their buck? What will happen to online ad spending then? And what will happen to the online ad giants, if the vast majority of ad spending that justified their hundreds of bilions in market cap is exposed as "bloat"? As Friedman politely, yet sarcastically put it, "Googles market cap might go down"…

>He STILL uses regular google chrome and not slimjet or ungoogled chromium

I uss slimjet and adnausaem works fine.
>>
>>62422673
That's my opinion also. But it's better to try and possibly fail than do nothing.
