    Whilst we dont have any scripts that detect and then present a message when ad blockers are used, we do rely heavily on our advertisements to finance the site costs each year (hosting on VPS, software maintenance, domain names, 3rd party extensions, etc.) so would prefer users not to use them if possible. Even when ads are not clicked, we do rack up smaller amounts based on the number of times they are shown (impressions). When ad-blockers are used, the impressions get lower. We do have an ad-free option of the site where users can pay a small sum to become site sponsors and have all ads removed at source. seems to work well for those who use it.

    ok, initial scans show that we do not appear to have any sketchy files on the site (ie. any files that were injected or had contents altered from what they should be) ... A full scan of our site has been completed and we are now doing a full scan of the entire server to be sure. This will take many hours to complete so will likely take most of the night. I did a bit of a google search and it does appear that there were instances yesterday and last night of 'ad hijacking' taking place on various sites. I do not believe this took place directly on our site, but the ads we were served may have been compromised at source and displayed wrongly. It also seems the ads that were compromised may only have been mobile ads as most of you report it didnt happen on PC. If anyone does encounter this again could you please screenshot it if possible and/or view the page source and send it to me here or via email at [email protected] the site url. if its something on the site we will get rid of it, if its infected ads we will pause them until cleaned by google, if its anything else we will do whatever is appropriate.

    i see a number of websites reporting this so it may have been a bit higher up the food chain .... nonetheless I am in the process of running a deep file scan

  16. Our club has done pretty well on Social Media at times. has even won awards. It went through a rocky spell a couple of years ago when it became corporate messaging and marketing spin with very little actual engagement but does seem to be back on track again now.

    New Kit

    At the end of the day I am firmly in the red/blue stripes camp. That is our identity.Whether you like it or not, Red/Black/Blue/White are the founding colours of our club and our home kit should always reflect that fairly. Google 'Barcelona Historical Kits' and there are plenty of variations on a theme that stay within those limits and ensure ongoing sales. I am sure the same would probably be true of others who play in red/blue. If you want to experiment with other kits or colours then do so with 2nd kit or 3rd kits .... I dont have all the home kits, but I do have most of them and the ones that get the most positive comments are always the red/blue stripes. The black away kit was a close runner up.
  19. Indeed ... and typically the bulk of the LGBTQ community are more than happy with that. They dont seek to be treated any differently, just the opposite in fact. The problem - and I see it over here too - is that some individuals/organisations/businesses/groups seem to want to try too hard to show they are inclusive and non-discriminatory. I often wonder who they are trying to convince (themselves or others?) or if it is simply a case of self aggrandisement? Insert colour, race, religion, gender or sexuality and the scenarios and conversations are similar, its just the adjectives that change. I would humbly suggest that the best way to move forward is just to remove those adjectives in the first place and just be inclusive without any fanfare !

  21. He is still around on Facebook. He last logged in here in May (after a particular subject interested him I believe). that info and his previous posts are all available on his public profile. He is not banned and the exile is self-imposed.
