Indeed. The Opera VPN and its various IP addresses are well known and many sites will block those that use it. I too use ExpressVPN when needed but isn't free.

As it happens, FansNetwork does have developers and we're rewriting the site from top to bottom. Unlike other sites, we're not just a forum but have news stories, Reuters images, chatroom, prediction league, blogs, fixtures, results, player ratings, team selectors, league tables and many new things in the pipeline. First and foremost is a responsive site and I accept we're behind on that score. We're deep in the redevelopment of this site otherwise we'd have recruited a new editor.
As it happens, one of our developers lives in Thornton, if that makes a difference to anyone.

Currently we are moderating the site centrally.
Please report anything you feel is being abusive. We'll get an email and PM and will take a look at each case. If the post breaches our T&Cs then we'll remove it.

These ads will be removed shortly. The idea was sound... remove all other advertising on mobiles and tablets and just have this one, so in the end it should have been better for you but it seems not.

That's a perfectly valid post. We've done what we needed to do to be covered by law, but there's still more we can do to make it easier to opt out, and we're working on that. Perhaps the next time you encounter this message there'll be a new one.
So, how does it work? Well, when you visit a site there will be a cookie which says "ok, I like this site. It's a football site". From your IP address they will be able get a rough location about where you are (varies dramatically depending on your ISP). Then when you visit other sites, they will know that you've visited Amazon, or ebay, and looked at specific items. Then you'll go to a newspaper site, or a games site, all the time, the advertisers will build up a profile of your age, and what you like. Then when you come back here, the advertiser will know all that, and show ads that are relevant to you. These are obviously more valuable and we benefit from that. Otherwise, advertisers will just have a "best guess", based on the site.
If this bothers you, then over and above what we do here, you can turn this off by going here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices more information is given at the bottom of the page "privacy" and more specifically "cookies".
Personally, I like the personalised ads. Sometimes they are useful but I accept others will definately not like them. Visit the link above.
There's a lot of misinformation about this thread though. I can guarantee that our advertisers will not get your email addresses. What can happen though, is that our site could be hacked but that's completely different. The only information we have of you is your email address and your password. You'd be very wise to make sure that you have a different password for every site you visit, and let the browser remember it. Should you ever change browser, then just use the "forgot password" reminder and start again. It's the only way to look after yourself. Every site is hackable, you just have to look at the list you've given there, but don't get that confused with that privacy popup. Two very different things.
Feel free to DM me or email email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.

I’ve responded to Pat and I think he’s just misunderstood what the Hide Thread does. It should simply hide that thread from your own view, but it wasn’t designed to hide your own threads so unexpected results would occur, and probably not work.
If you want your own thread deleted off the site then message Nick.

I've now had a couple of screenshots so I'll see what I can do over the next couple of days to sort it. Thanks to those who have helped.

Hi all. Clive has sent me this thread so I'd like some more information please.
I personally use a Samsung S7 and using the default browser I've never experienced this. I'd be really grateful if someone could take a screenshot and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully I'll be able to sort it quickly but sorry you've suffered for a while.

Thanks for the info. I was convinced we were using iframe already which is why I was confident it was YTs error and not ours. It was an easy fix so I've done it this evening.

It should remember the last point you read a thread, so I'll look into it if people are getting this on a regular basis. Make sure you're logged in.
The other problem about the swear filter kicking in when you think it shouldn't... this is an anti-spam device which stops all those kitchen ads from appearing. At this point, it not only checks for swearing, but it also checks your IP address against known spammers. If your IP has been used for spamming then it'll tar you with the same reputation but there are overrides we can set here. Whenever this message pops up it also emails us with a copy of what you've written. If it's fine then I override it meaning your profile will never get that message again. However I need to update it so it doesn't affect those that have been posting on the site happily for months.
Not sure about the other white text problem. Not seen that.

As I'm sure most of you are aware, we at Worthing United FC lost two of our players tragically last weekend during the Shoreham Airshow disaster. Everyone at the club has been deeply touched by the reaction of the wider football community and how it has rallied around and offered its support and condolences to everyone affected. We feel that this is an incredible tribute to two humble, unassuming, incredibly generous and popular young men who would have never have expected such a response and we thank everyone for their kind words and goodwill.
The football league have asked all league clubs to participate in a minutes silence as a show of respect for those that passed away on Saturday. As a club, we would be eternally grateful if anyone attending these games would be good enough to record footage of this and pass it onto us. We are hoping to collate all of the videos and pictures so we will always have that moment when a nation of football supporters came together to remember two of our own.
Thank you again.
