    @Charles P. Jefferies I confirm the problem. uBO stand for uBlock Origin, an ad-blocking extension for various browsers. It seems to me the problem is on their side.

    @Vasudev I personally keep uBO turned off on NBR. I have NoScript & Privacy Badger too, and appropriately configured Firefox native tracking protection - so no ads and no trackers get through anyway.

    Vasudev, I've made the site admins aware. But you're on your own with it for the foreseeable future.

    Ouch! Thanks. I didn't have this issue 2 months ago. Anyway, in the mean time I have disabled adblockers on NBR.

    @Charles P. Jefferies I can see that NBR forums is no longer affected by an adblocker.
    I'm thinking Fanboy tracking, adblock ad unblocker was the cause and I've replaced with default uBlock origin ads filters along with annoyances to solve the issue.

    Not sure how long it's been like this but I swear at some point it was running SSL/TLS. As of right now https://forum.notebookreview.com and https://www.notebookreview.com do not work. It takes a few minutes to set it up and utilizing something like LetsEncrypt is free just have to renew it every 90 days.

    We have reported it quite a while ago and there's nothing we can do to speed up the process unfortunately.

    I have not idea. We don't get feedback or timelines on things like that.
    All we can do is ask and we have certainly done that.

    @Charles P. Jefferies

    I just noticed on TenForums that there is a setting to control who can mention or quote you. To me that is a priceless feature to limit the amount of mentions I get but not fully disable it. This way I can limit the amount of mentions I get constantly from people who abuse this feature and mention me for things that do not require my attention. Is there a possibility you can request for this mod please?
