Unless we find funding there's nothing else to be done.

I'm currently at the lowest financial point of my life.

I've been doing the filter list updates on my own time and own dime.

I will continue to do so as long as I possibly can. :)

Remember when we told you so as we knew that setting AM free would not last?

Jeff,

Appreciate all your hard work over the years. Still, please don't kill yourself working for what has become a dead product. Got bypassed by quite a few other solutions due to lack of updates.

Maybe try offering your services to one of the new IOS blockers? I'm sure a few of the devs are gonna get tired of all the user reports pretty soon and you sure have the resume for the work. :)

Good luck, and thanks for the support over the years. Back in the day, admuncher kicked ass.

all they can do is block network connections or hide elements.

I need the ability to modify or replace HTML directly and the ability to add any CSS or JS.

and many other things.

they are all too simplistic.

You know Jeff I want in some ways to say Im sadden by this, I was one of the people who paid for a lifetime license. The treatment we got with lack of program updates and how things got managed by Murray is still a sore side with many of us. On your part you did alot of work, always kept filters updated and answered questions etc. I am very appreciated of that. The writing was on the wall when you defended things so hard that it was running away from you. We all saw and knew it. Making Admuncher free while in alot of ways I understand why. However Murray had already went on to other projects and really left Admuncher to sit. If you remember when Internet Explorer got stale years ago with no progress I believe it was IE6 to IE7. They did manage to come back but with Chrome and Firefox etc they are not the big force they once were. Jeff you became the scapegoat in a triad of many Forums/News for your defending things, which sadly its great you believed in things but it hurt you and I hope once this blows over you'll recover as it was something Murray could have dealt with much better himself and not put so much on you.

Jeff worked his ass off for AM there is no doubt about that.

He alone has kept the program on life support for several years, and I still use it on all my computers (3 paid lifetime licenses).

He is obviously very smart and dedicated and I whoever latches onto his services in any capacity will be rewarded.

Unfortunately my services don't appear to be needed by anyone anymore.
