Let the Shit be Stirred — 8 Comments

  1. I’m just Joe the Schmuck, but I highly approve this message, too.

    I do need to say that some of the TE owners (and most of the ones I surf) work really hard at keeping the frame breakers out. I report them every time and they go away soonest. But still….

    Thanks, Scott. Great Post!!

    • Thanks Tom,

      Yeah a lot of TE’s are doing a good job with them, but I have seen the frequency growing in the last month or so. They are becoming more and more prevalent, and it is time the industry finally did something to get rid of them once and for all.

      Again.. I CHALLENGE someone to step up

  2. I don’t like them either and find them to be a real PITA, but I don’t know that there will ever be an 100% solution to the problem. People who intentionally add framebreakers (or those who are hired by others, in countries on the other side of the world) are often hacker and spammer types (or those who hire them are) and they just get smarter and figure out a new way around.

    Unfortunately one of the potential solutions is one I don’t want to see ever happen – eliminating the use of rotators. I am already mostly boycotting use of one popular TE because my trck.me rotator (nor any rotator) is not allowed, and it would be miserable for many who depend on using rotators for tracking and testing for that to become the status quo.

    Tim’s Safe Site checker and Surfing Guard help the problem immensely, but unfortunately if someone throws a framebreaker into a rotator after the site’s approved, there’s no way to catch it unless a user reports it or the owner comes across it his/herself.

    Like I said, disallowing the use of rotators would mostly solve the problem altogether, but I don’t think anyone wants to see that happen.
