    Thanks mate, but i need to be modest, or it could cost me my carefully build up green point (or is it a star?) again ...
    ending up red again ...
    anyway, 5 stars is a little way out of line... for me, I mean...
    it's just to much...
    can't hold that, you now...

    Are you using Android tablet or phone? I had the same thing.

    The 5 stars will be google or amazon advert bots hacking your already redirected CTN web pages.
    I had the advert page redirects so bad that they placed an advertisement hidden click(aka forced redirect) field over my entire tablet screen. It made the tablet generic browser unusable.

    Lovely little pieces of parasite turdware that they are.

    If they're insistant with their BOT redirect "overlording ware", I might post some DIY firewall advert blocking code so people can take back their CTN browser again.
    It won't stop the advert CPU cycle stealing parasite code but it will block the tracking.

    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    NeoMatrix:
    I'm not using Android tablet or phone, just a lap top on win'7.
    But I must confess that the day before "the stars came out" I was experimenting with the options in the columns up above...
    I think I activated something without noticing.
    So, thank you for the thought, but I think it's my own responsibility.
    But still, it would be very nice if someone tells me how to put it off.
    I think I only make it worse, trying to fix it myself.
    Is there any user guide on this site?

    I use a laptop with Windows 10. I see the stars on a number of threads. Based on what you just posted I scrolled to the top and noticed where it says "Rate This Thread". Clicking on it I had the option of selecting one to five gold stars, one being Terrible and five being Excellent. Apparently someone has rated the thread that have stars.

    The following is through my own experience, and researching through the experience of others.

    Avert tracking bots keep tabs on ever action performed on a given web page,
    click likes, thanks, star ratings, SMS , email etc. I believe the bots purpose is
    to look for advertisement html tag <divs, img, href> and inject its own html code to
    overlay your already redirected web page with adverts.
    The advert bots then send images to your web browser, with pixel encrypted encodings
    which allow the server to track who you are, what you click on , what you are interested in. If you click on your browser back button and your page goes no where, your browser is being hijacked with advert redirects. I believe that this is to ensure your page is first checked/overlayed by the advert server. If there is no forced redirect in your back buttons (drop down history) use a text editor to view any href hyperlinks to see if any extra lead or trailing space character(s) have been added to the orginal hyper link tag code. The modified hyper link will force a hidden page 404 error and the page will be handed over/redirected to the advert server once again for checking and advertisement overlaying.


    Stop the images from coming into your browser and you can limit the tracking intrusion.
    You cannot stop the browser redirection already coming from the advert server without blocking the entire CTN page, but you can block most of the redirection going back to the advertisement server, and therefore take back the update/viewing speed of your browser.

    Under normal CTN web page viewing conditions some person has to physical click on the web page to allow the page to have a one to five star rating. That is the norm.
    The fact that you have "all stars" in your CTN pages is likely proof the advert bots are injecting
    return code back to the server. Using my Android tablet I use to have every page of CTN
    rated with "all five stars". I some how find it difficult to believe that every page on
    CTN is rated with five stars.

    The above is my own personal experience with CTN web pages. Other people may be
    getting different advert overlays than what I'm seeing at my end. Advert personal
    profiling is big business for the I.T. industry. You can opt out in your web browser
    all you like, but it won't stop the profiling software from being used on the servers.
    It won't stop the tracking images from arriving in your web browers storage cache.

    Obviously blatant hackers can mimic similar actions as the advert bots.
    Some people believe that profile tracking is harmless, it all depends on
    the scale an how it can effect an entire countries voter/buyer preference.
    If you have enough hacked enslaved PC's out on the internet is it possible
    to affect a global choice that somehow becomes a fake majority choice.
