TR Emeritus reviewing its advertising networks

Please be informed that we are currently in the process of reviewing our advertising networks (AN), who are responsible for the ads that appears on TR Emeritus (TRE).

From now till end November 2017, we will be making changes to the ad types, layout and placement on our website to determine the best performing AN so we can drop or replace the non-performing ones,

During this period, readers may see some unsuitable, unwanted or even erotic ads appearing as popups on their desktop and mobiles. These irritating ads are what we DO NOT want and will be eliminated during the review process.

The purpose of this review is to hopefully,  reduce the number of ads to the bare minimum, just enough to sustain the continued operation of TRE without the need to depend on goodwill donations.

Do feel free to follow-up in this thread or email us if you have any feedback or suggestions.

We seek your patience and understanding in this matter.

Thank you for your continued support.

 Please ignore all system upgrades, virus alerts and price-winning notices. These are all publicity gimmics by rouge advertisers. Additionally, DO NOT install any software offered unless you absolutely need them.

  • Harder Truths:

    Your site has been flagged by my anti-virus as a high threat / high risk web attack site.

    Right now as I write this my PC is being attacked by malware on this site. This is really not the way to go.

    Tech: This may be a false alarm as we do not work with rogue advertisers. We will check on this.

    Smrt may be full of endless KHAWk Ups.

    But TRE also seems to be unreliable. This Ad-related issue has happened before.

    Why did you allow so many advertisers to link our mobile phones to thdir websites with all sorts of program.

    Tech: We actually share your sentiments but most of these ANs actually do that behind the scenes and we have no control over them. There are some who does not but they are not interested to serve sites like TRE because we are too “small” in their opinion, so we are forced to source for smaller ones, thus the review.

    You can be assured that we DO NOT encourage these types of mobile ads, they will be removed during the review process. Please bear with us in the meantime. Thank you.

    Mobile devices can’t stay onto the TRE website without it being immediately hijack by aggressive programs disguised under Malware selling anti-virus program &/or lucky free gifts claims (…as if).
    You’ve got to look into this!

    Tech: We have identified the advertiser and is working with them to resolve this. Thank you.

  • Concerned:

    Hi, to raise the point others have raised, there is some sort of malware (I don’t know what is the technical term) that pops up overtime I click a link on the TRE site. My antivirus has been able to block the vulnerability each time but I have stopped browsing on my phone for the time being. Please resolve it soon, wish your team the best!

    Tech: We will remove one of the ANs tonight, please feedback if there are anymore of such popups. Thank you.

    Ha-ha-ha-ha, now PC based system re: Windows 8-10 infected by redirect malware that specifically targetted at TRE weblink – sends you immediately to Gay Porn websites. Doesn’t happen to any other weblinks – only for TRE website!
    That’s why many can’t comment of late!

    [Feedback] My experience with TRE ads. Having read the comments above, I realise I am not alone!

    … … …

    1. Android Phone

    Chrome – Many pop ups & links that prevent me from reading TRE. The worst kind I remember is this: an ad that says something like…

    “Congrats, you are a lucky winner chosen by Singtel/M1/Starhub !!!
    Click OK to claim the prize”

    The only way was to close the browser, absolutely no way to off that ad since the only option was to click ‘OK’.

    As a result of such ads, reading TRE on phones is impossible nowadays.

    2. PC Browser

    Chrome – FAIL. For many weeks/months, pop-ups of dubious strange ads appear. ‘Get rich quick scams’, links that open up more links.
    My 2 anti virus software both warns me that TRE is a malicious & unsecure site.

    Firefox – Everything ok, no ads on TRE since ad-block is in use.
    This is the ONLY way I know how to read TRE at this moment…

    Tech: That malicious An has already been removed. When did you see this ads? I tested with Chrome and with the exception of interstitials, no popups are appearing at all. Thank you.

  • I believe I may have identified the rogue AN that’s causing the irritating pops plaguing our website especially on mobile.

    Can those on mobile please spare a few minutes to test this link and follow-up if they see any irritating forced redirects or all-page popups.

    Thank you.

    It tells me I’ve won something and mentions my phone make and model and internet provider.

  • Rabble-rouser:

    PCs with Window 8-10 using Chrome Browser being plagued with Main.exoclick redirect/pop-up virus targeted specifically at TRE website. Browsing other websites are ok & not affected. Redirects to multiple Gay Porn websites & very aggressive – it tries to open as many tabs within seconds to send PC into crashing.

    Tech: Please clear your cache as we no longer uses that AN which was responsible for the rogue ads you mentioned. We checked this with a few readers who confirmed that these irritating ads are gone. Thank you.

    Hi TRE, thanks for reply.
    TRE top right time says GMT : Tue, 05 Dec 2017, 04:43
    I’m now using PC Chrome. I see at least 3 malicious ads.
    All 3 ads will pop-up in other tabs, to other sites/ads.
    My anti-virus software identified it as:

    trends.revcontent.com

    So, I google “trends.revcontent.com malware” & found such articles…

    How to uninstall Ads by Revcontent – Virus removal instructions
    https://www.pcrisk.com/removal-guides/9715-ads-by-revcontent

    Tech: Thank you for the information. We will look into this.

    Meanwhile it is always prudent to NEVER install anything offered by ANY advertisers unless you absolutely need it. As long as it is not installed, it should not do any harm to your system.

    FYI, RevContent is a legitimate advertising service that website publishers use to generate revenue on their sites. Unfortunately, there are some adware programs that are injecting these ads onto web sites you visit without the permission of the publisher in order to generate revenue.

    Normally, RevC will ban these advertisers from their system if it is reported to them.

    Tech: RevC has replied and assured us that they do not use popups or popunders. Please try clearing your cache and try again. If it happens again, please let me have a URL which you are being redirected to so I can trace it. Thank you.
