    Hi,
    I clicked on a link that redirects to internetisseriousbusiness.com fot the 100th time and I'm real fuc**** tired of that.
    So I found a real simple solution.

    You just have to edit the hosts file which is located in
    %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts --> Windows
    /etc/hosts --> Linux
    /private/etc/hosts --> OS X

    It should contain at least this line
    127.0.0.1 localhost

    Just add these two lines :
    127.0.0.1 internetisseriousbusiness.com
    127.0.0.1 www.internetisseriousbusiness.com

    Next time you get to that website, you'll get redirected on your own computer.

    Hope that helps getting rid of that stupid website [​IMG]

    Too complicated as you can just block the site. [​IMG]

    Aye. Use NoScript if you're using firefox. Works like a charm for me

    Apparently, I think you just went there for the first time in your life.

    He was posting that because it prevents the thing.

    But seriously, any person who knows about the website and still TYPE it in INTENTIONALLY is... [​IMG]

    My anti-virus/anti-spyware blocks it, so I fall under whoever isn't using FireFox with Noscript [​IMG]

    When you unluckilly open this site there is easy way to shut it down, you just click CTRL + ALT + DELETE and shut your internet browser from that menu, piece of cake, no need of blocking programs, firewalls etc.

    Which works, but is a pain in the ass if you've got loads of tabs open. And you can't "restore session" cause that'll just open it again which defeats the point. Never been a fan of noscript, it bugs me that I'd have to block useful unknown scripts too. Just picked up Blocksite for Firefox, seems to do the job so far.

    I'm surprised the people who link it and think "haha I'm so cool" don't realise how lame they look.

    I have an idea, possibly a bad one. Ever heard of The Scarlet Letter?
    More news as it develops...
