Uncle D,

I kindly ask that you reevaluate the BASE FILTERS. In particular their default ON status and also the Javascript analysis. Sellers are loosing TOO MANY good clicks to it.

Here is the influential Krebs on Security talking about disabling Javascript and only allowing it for selected sites.

http://krebsonsecurity.com/2011/05/blocking-javascript-in-the-browser/

"But disallowing JavaScript by default and selectively enabling it for specific sites remains a much safer option than letting all sites run JavaScript unrestricted all the time."

It is clear from the article security conscious people are being told to turn off Javascript and I think it is time we start to recognize it and not treat it as an outright BOT. On first pass on a squeeze page these people are not going turn it on. On second pass they would then be labeled a DUPE click.

By the way people building bots today use FREE headless browsers with full Javascript support like http://phantomjs.org

Anyway, bottom line I kindly ask that you please reevaluate this.

Thanks, Heather

Ok, I found the study https://gds.blog.gov.uk/2013/10/21/how-many-people-are-missing-out-on-javascript-enhancement/ It's based on traffic to UK gov site. Where they did a hack to try and figure it out. Here is a better study done by Yahoo in 2010 that found over 2% in the USA do not have Javascript

i agree

https://gds.blog.gov.uk Javascript is an enhancement. That number represents internet users with Javascript ON.

So based on the Yahoo study alone if I ran a 500 click solo that would be 10 GOOD CLICKS not being counted.

But I think it is actually higher then 2 percent as there are just many more security conscious people out there today.

Why are sellers allowed to charge for what should be basic filters. I misunderstood the meaning, and and bought before and after. And poor Liz got the wrong idea about me and what I thought. This needs to go back to the way it was.
