I am using IE-SPYAD and was told at that site's documentation that the author or compiler of the IE-SPYAD restricted sites entries can be found here or someone on his/her behalf that can get the info back. I see that *.suntimes.com is a blanket entry in the ie-ads.reg (updated 3/1/03) that becomes a restricted site. I would like to appeal to the author to maybe add some more granularity to this. For example, I like to read film critic Roger Ebert at www.suntimes.com/ebert, but the site does not come up. I found an alternative way in, but then that whole Ebert section malfunctions....for example the film Search application does not work at all. When I removed site entry *.suntimes.com from Restricted Sites, all was properly restored. I would just like to see a way for a person to navigate the site without baddies being planted....can't the granulation be finer, or is the whole suntimes.com site so badly behaved that it indeed has to be treated as a whole? I also use CookieWall, SpyWareBlaster, and Ad Aware 6 std, but have proved that only IE-SPYAD is implicated here. Thanks for comments and considerations.
