The first part of my original report was also that I'm seeing "About That Ad Blocker" box even though I obviously have ads allowed here since i saw that genshin ad(before it got removed)...

I should just close this out by noting that the offending ad was removed after the weekend. Our ad provider was quite apologetic, because we'd specifically rejected this ad unit already (not due to its size or placement, but rather because it re-expanded periodically after shrinking and it reloaded periodically even after being dismissed). Presumably the CPU load some of you reported was a separate issue entirely.

They've promised to take better care in the future, especially during weekends when there's no one around to put out fires.

Sorry for the problem, and thanks for your patience.

I've disabled the big ad bar now, that is, if this is still served the way I think it is (the ad provider changed something a while back).
Unfortunate the changed ad script indeed means we have no direct control over this specific ad. The issue has been raised with the ad provider.

Wouldn't surprise me if this were related to the faker/colors hoedown where the dev of said packages corrupted them intentional as a form of protest.
At least for these 2 javascript packages the effect is an infinite loop.

Hi, ReadEye9, sorry, I just read and answered your question about GlovePIE.

If my explanation isn't clear, or you have any problem, please name the game, and I'll gladly install it and then post the correct instructions for you to paste.

You also can paste what your are using in a post, if you want, help to recognize the snag.
