   Suejeanne  Hi, fellow L-Dotters on "The Connection" -
I hope that someone knows of the e-mail address for writing to RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel -

My mother received a phone call recently from the RNC - they told her that she had pledged to send $100.00 which she did not do, because she has been upset with the way the RNC has failed to pull everyone together to help President Trump.

Then during that phone conversation, she was switched over to someone else when she asked to speak to a supervisor and she thought they had gotten that corrected (while she also told them why ).

Today, my mother received a letter from Chairwoman McDaniel - asking about that "pledge" again of $100 - that, plus the content of the letter itself, talking about how we have to win in 2018 and what the Democrats are doing:

"The Democrats have the liberal media and liberal professors in every college campus in America adding new voters to their party consistently throughout the year. We have to make sure we keep up the pace with them to ultimately win future elections such as the 2018 midterms!"

Mrs. McDaniel, WE won the 2016 election in a big way - across the board - no thanks to your uncle, Mitt and a myriad of other so-called Republicans and conservatives -

My mother wanted to write a letter to let them know she is not sending $100.00 - first of all, she told that assistant she wasn't going to do so, then she gets this stupid letter - so hell can freeze over before she will ever send another dollar to the RNC -

the RNC is useless . . . for example, why do they let John McCain continue to run for Senate? Why don't they ever have anyone to replace him? What has he ever done for Arizona? Big military hero but he is apparently unashamed that the Phoenix VA is one of the worst.

Don't tell us about what all the liberal professors do to help the Democratic Party - at least they stick together, Republicans run around and hide like a bunch of scared little bunny rabbits.

   Allsogreat  I certainly hope she sends them nothing. The RNC / Republicans are the do nothing party. Our elitist Republicans are ineffectual because they want to be ineffectual. Even though they now control our Government, they're still allowing the Dumacrats to run things. Almost insisting on it. Why, because the Dumacrats are doing exactly what the Republican want.....and they get no blame for the mess we're in. They, the Republicans, want us dependent on Big Brother for every thing just as the Dumacrats do. Congress and a few of the late presidents have so fragmented our society, that now, we cannot amass a dissenting group large enough to oppose them.

   Namma  I just received one of those letters. I took a marker, crossed off donation sums, and wrote all over the letter on how the RNC did not really support Trump and they don't now. Also said they should get rid of McCain Ryan and McConnell and all the other rhinos. When they do I will support the RNC. Until then my donation goes directly to the candidate of my choice. The best part is I put my letter into the pre-paid envelope and put it into the mail. Don't know if anyone of importance sees the reply, but the RNC has to pay for the letter. I have my family doing the same thing. I also never pledge anything over the phone. They say I did I know they are lying. It's maddening when they do under handed things like this.

   Kono  I have memories of members of the FakeStreamMedia issuing apologies a few days after the election for misreporting the poll results and distorting the campaign news in general... and promising that they would clean up their act.

Am I just imagining that memory? Did anybody else hear/read that at the time? Did their promise last more than two days before they were right back at their old tricks? Has the amount of bogus reporting gone up or down since they made that promise?

   Phooey  I use Win10, Firefox and ABP.... NO ADS!.... ONLY when I remember
to open Firefox(to Goggle ) then Minimize that link .... then open
Firefox to Lucianne. ABP does not work well with only one session open.

Waving to Surfie, Wrightwinger, EC, ah heck! too many to name.....

   Tulsa  Not working for me. I can remove ads by clicking refresh.

Any idea what I may be doing wrong? If I follow your instructions, I have two tabs...google and Lucianne and the ads are all over the home page.

Thx Phooey.

   Phooey  Tulsa, I right click on the picture,image/frame, a window pops up asking either/or both...

Adblock Plus: Block frame...
Adblock Plus: Block image...

Click on either....
Another window pops up.... asking Add filter?

Click Add filter.

Do this for each picture/frame.
If this info with my orig. post does not work... we may have different versions of ABP ??

Anyway, you and others have suffered enough. Blessings.

EC, Page is fine now. Long story. I'll be in touch. We moved back to New Port Richey from The Villages. We are still not unpacked (living out of boxes ) Aaarrggg!!

   Tulsa  Phooey...those are the original instructions I found and posted here months and months ago. ...a year ago. I only had to clean them once and the ads never returned until a few weeks ago.

Now the ads are back and the right click, etc. worked part of two ads which is a far cry from the mess on the home page. They are such trashy ads.

If I click refresh, the ads disappear, but I must do that every time I come to Luci's...That is far better than no options.

It seems back as far as 2011/13 ABP agreed to white list ads that don't move/flash and they are being paid for it. I'm not certain why it took this long for ads to appear here, but ABP can no claim to block ads, imo. No ads are acceptable to me. It was free. It's still free, but worthless, imo.

Thank you. I'm happy it's still working for you.

   StormCnter  Just for additional information on the Firefox discussions: I have three browsers, but have mostly used Chrome recently. Today, Chrome was very slow, so I switched to Firefox. There were no...I repeat NO ugly ads on the Lucianne home page. I have AdBlockPlus for Firefox, but took no additional steps for the Lucianne home page.
Bliss is not having to look at toenail fungus ads or the horrific ruined celebrity faces.

   Tulsa  In FF with ABP there were no ads Sunday. Yesterday and today there are ads on the homepage and any article page I selected. I click refresh and they disappear. The refresh does not hold. I've emailed ABP repeatedly and given my email. No response so far.

   Tulsa  There is a reason for no response from ABP. They accept some ads and are paid for them.

I've searched hi and lo bout removing these ads. There are articles dated 2011-2013 that ABP white listed non intrusive ads. (ads that don't move, flash, etc ) It's not an ad blocker if some ads are acceptable now is it?

They are being compensated for the white listed ads and several articles read the consumer can block all ads by going to filter preferences, then filter subscriptions and unchecking 'allow some non intrusive etc'. It's a lie. The ads were still at Lucianne.

There's an article that says by disabling java script ads will not appear. I'm not savvy enough to try that.

AdFender has an annual fee ?19.95.

I right clicked on the ads on the Luci homepage and a few disappeared and it did nothing to others. I restarted and I currently have no ads. ???? This might drive me round that famous bend.

How I have been without ads since 2011 or 2013 when ABP began accepting payment for white listed ads I do not know.

I can still click refresh and remove the ads. That is far better than nothing. 'Cause nothing may be next.

   StormCnter  Tulsa, it's easy to disable Java in your browser. I've never done it because I tend to think Java is useful. But, if you want to disable it and experiment with the result, go to Windows (lower left of your screen )/ All Programs/ the Java folder/ Configure Java/ Security and take the check mark out of Enable Java in the browser at the top left of the Security screen. Then Save or Ok. It's easy to go back and put the check mark back if you are not happy with results.

   Tulsa  Thank you. You are correct. I can undo it.

uh...but..I'm in Win. 10. Can't even find Windows, much less 'all programs'. lol Nothing and I mean nothing is where it was or labeled as it was in 7.

I will cut and paste the instructions and I will then search hither and yon for the correct settings, since hi and lo was semi fruitless.

   Tulsa  Storm, to use FF again:

I had two problems with FF. The instructions below stop FF asking your location. Go to this link:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/geolocation/

Scroll down to' How do I turn off Location-Aware browsing permanently?' Click and follow the directions. It's short and sweet...easy peasy.

____________

The first set of instructions I posted was for another problem. ... the one that involved typing %7C in the homepage slot in Internet options....I confused my notes and I apologize to you and everyone else.

   Tulsa  There was a thread discussion on the main board that Lucianne may have read. (Article about google adding ad blocker to chrome. )

I know people are coming to Lucianne seeing that mess and leaving...not commenting, not posting articles.

In FF with ABP enabled, I clicked 'refresh' and the ads disappeared, but I must do that every time I leave and come back.

I don't know if Lucianne was even aware they were there. I email Luis, but I doubt I was the only one. By doing inspect element, I could see over half of the ads were by google, spymaster supreme.

   Tulsa  Storm, the correct way to stop location warnings by FF and use that browser again is below under the comment from Mike in PHX.

Also you were mentioned on the Computer wall about MS updates. I haven't seen you here recently, so I answered for you. Pls make certain I stated your words correctly.

   Bmoc  Hopefully I am posting this in the proper place. My fifth audio book was just released a few days back. This one is a children's book for kids and adults alike. It was a tale told to me by my seven-year-old grandson and is about the love between the two of us. It's also in e-book and paperback form on Amazon. This story is only 50 minutes long and sells for $3.95. You don't need a special tablet, or device as you can listen from your pc or device. The name of the story is "Johnny Robot - Space Alien." http://tinyurl.com/nyy3kb4
