    Very annoying! a recent development, and just another intrusive and
    unwanted way advertisers try to get our attention.

    Open up a YouTube video (any will do).
    Open up the developer console (Ctrl-Shift-J for Chrome, Ctrl-Shift-K
    for Firefox)
    Enter the following code:

    document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=oKckVSqvaGw; path=/;
    domain=.youtube.com";window.location.reload();

    Q: What has Tony Abbott promised Murdoch?
    A: A broadband network that will be so slow as to offer no competition to his pay TV interests.
    Mwah ha ha ha !!! Murdochs evil plan is working'
    Murdoch used his evil power to get Abbott elected.
    Then Murdoch set in motion the destruction of the NBN.
    Now all Murdoch has to do is get his Minions to convince Australia that the ABC must go.
    Nothing must stand in the way of Foxtel and Newscorp.
    Australia will soon be Murdochs !!!

    The largest factor in the deterioration of the Australian budget was a cash payout of $882 million to Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.

    Murdoch blows our budget then tweets that Australians are "sick of public sector workers & phony welfare scroungers sucking life out of economy"

    IF 100,000 PEOPLE FROM MARCH IN MARCH CANCELLED THEIR FOXTEL
    MURDOCH WOULD LOSE $10,000,000 A MONTH

    I try not to watch musique vids on Youtube, as you get those "click here to
    buy on iChoonz" ads in the corner, and in 2 languages if the artists is
    not Anglophone.
    Go to other streaming sites.

  4. That's why you install AdBlock Plus in your browser (available as an add-on
    for FireFox, Chrome, Opera and possibly others), so you don't have to put up
    with crapvertising.

    It's not taught in school, but our Constitutional Monarchy places us under God - the Christian God, whose compound redemptive Name is Lord Jesus Christ.

    Simply disabling Adobe flash fixes most of those problems.

    Muslims must understand that in Australia, with its Christian roots,
    Christmas trees, churches and religious festivals, religion must
    remain in the private domain, as such Australia has a right to refuse
    any concessions to Islam and Sharia.

    For Muslims that disagree with Australia and do not feel comfortable
    in our Nation, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world,
    most of them under-populated and ready to receive them with open halal
    arms in accordance with Shariah.

    If you left your country for Australia and not for other Muslim
    countries it is because you have considered that life is better in
    Australia than elsewhere.

    Muslims need to ask themselves the question, just once: why is it
    better here in Australia than where you come from?

    The answer is Australia was raised with a Christian history.
    Not a Sharia one. Pays to keep it that way

    get the FlashControl addon (if on FireFox) to stop flash videos
    playing, expensive broadband downloading too with video clips playing.

    animated gifs? otherwise they most likely are flash videos which are
    the same as youtube, I have no idea of this method though and couldn't
    be bothered with it, what I said in another post works on FireFox, and
    you can click on it to get the video to work if you wish, important on
    youtube.

    There are plenty more than just
    those, including some moslems.
    Nope, that fool was nailed up by the
    romans because he was that stupid.
    Wrong again.

    Green 'f' means it is blocking, red means it isn't. If I unblock a
    youtube clip it might come back as red when I go to youtube later so I
    have to click it to make it green again.

    I once downloaded more than 200mb on a page that was playing a video
    clip at the bottom of the page, that was the last straw.

    The only way to achieve that is to use someone elses network or have a
    home system that you pay a flat rate for, neither which I have.

    In Australia live Australians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it
    wants to live in Australia, to work and eat in Australia, should speak
    English, and should respect the Australian laws. If they prefer Sharia
    Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those
    places where that's the state law. Australia does not need Muslim
    minorities. Minorities need Australia, and we will not grant them
    special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no
    matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate
    disrespect of our Australian Christian culture. We had better learn
    from the suicides of Bali, America, England, Holland and France, if we
    are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those
    countries and they will not take over Australia. Australian customs
    and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the
    primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When our Parliament thinks
    of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Australian national
    interest first, observing that the Muslim minorities are not
    Australians.

    Which is what most do with that last.
    I doubt they are that expensive even if you don’t.
