Hi everyone,

I've been trying for years to get Ad Muncher covered by some magazines. We've managed to get into just a handful, but invariably just on the CD without any review, and even then only in a single issue while programs like web washer and proxomitron are in each and every issue.

I implore you to please contact your favorite magazines to tell them how much you like Ad Muncher, and perhaps how much you think their readers might like it too ;-)

A huge "thank you" to anyone who can help with this. Also feel free to post any contact information you find, or any ideas on other people who might be interested in covering Ad Muncher.


Yours sincerely and with thanks,

Murray Hurps

I've been wanting to this for a LONG time. I get tired of seeing the same anti-ad programs time and over again. I will definitely write to PC Magazine Singapore to have them review AdMuncher. :D

Thank you very much Sanjiv - that will be a huge help.

Any more takers? Come on, you know you want to see that little cow on a cover or two next time you're down the news agent's :-)

I think we can all start by dedicating a small part of our signature to AdMuncher on the other forums that we frequent. That will help boost publicity. :)

Perhaps you should try and get admuncher /.'d. That always brings loads of publicity to any program. I will see if I can get an article posted there

How's this sound?

Like the adblock extension? Well, this program makes adblock look like an extension for newbies. Admuncher, http://www.admuncher.com, allows you to remove any advertisement/popup from any site, plus it has a configurable filter list that allows you to remove div/spans, add css to all pages (get rid of the annoying times new roman font on any page), remove tables, remove images, remove scripts, add javascript to all pages, etc, from any site they choose. The list goes on. Of course, this is all based on a simple matching scheme used by the program where you choose the type of filter you want, and specify the keywords to match against or the content to add to the page. Give it a shot, and you will see why thousands of users prefer this over any other ad removal utility.

Not sure if slashdot would cover us - perhaps if we were being sued by SCO, or were fighting with Linus over source code management then they might take notice, but as it stands I don't like our chances ;-)

I might try submitting one anyway, perhaps an "ask slashdot" about how to get a great piece of software noticed.

Thanks for the idea, fingers crossed...

It`s really a shame! The tester seems really not to understand the power of Ad Muncher.
He seemed to used the "swiss knife" only to put marmelade on his bread.

My second popup stopper didn't block enough.

I'm well aware of what you're doing Sham ;p

I was speaking specifically to CEKAY

The more people that ask the magazines to review Ad Muncher the more they are likely to do it.

(A) The default settings should be different to maximise filtering success
(B) Not in the interest of most magazines to cover such programs
(C) the writer of above article is clearly a muppet -anyway what are the other "free" programs he refers to?

I have tested most ad blocking software and ad muncher is by far the best
