I emailed the guy. If you are a user of it, you should email them too. There's no reason why we should be blocked.

He never responded to me.

Can you drop him a note if you are able to get a reply?

Adcycle is just our ad server. Nothing spyware about it.

That's still not spyware.

We do run ads from affilaite programs at linkshare. But still I hate to say it, we have a 100% NO SPYWARE policy on any ad. Also it's pattently unfair for them to block us because we run ads on our site. I understand some people want to run 'ad free' on the net. But we don't charge anyone to accesss the site, join the forum or read anything because of those ads. Otherwise we'd be forced to charge subscription and membership fees.

Maybe you can enlighten them on that. or better yet. Direct him to this thread so we can actually dialogue. (as he wouldn't reply to my email.)

Something on this forum keeps getting me blocked too. It seems sporadic, sometimes it is blocked and then I can get in to post this. Just started happening last Monday the 11.

Is this why I have to keep signing in for the past few days? I guess one of the anti-spyware programs I have is deleting a dvdtalk cookie?

We've tried to contact them but they do not respond to us. If you are user of their product and it's blocking a site like ours that you use, please contact them directly and tell them that they are blocking a site incorrectly. Or at least get them to tell us what we need to do to be in 'compliance'. We're NOT doing anything here on DVD Talk out of the ordinary. We are just running basic ads on the site.

Here's a copy of my email dated 12/1/06:

Subject: We're Blocked but don't have ANY spyware etc

Hi,

For some reason we’re listed in the Hosts file (our ad server at least: ads.kleinman.com). We do not EVER serve any spyware or other malicious ads. We’re just an independent web site serving our own ads.

Can you remove us from the block list?

Thanks
Geoff

Mike,

Members of our forum are complaining to us about our site getting blocked in the MVPS host file.

See: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/showthread....31#post7664131

I’ve tried to contact you before but didn’t get a reply. We’d love to find a way to address any issues and get removed from the block file.

Sincerely,
Geoffrey Kleinman


P. I am going to send this from my gmail account as well so you’ll get it one way our another.
