un-needed ad revenue

by JPElectron In reply to what is com.addthis.safar ...

addthis.com is just another "social networking" button, which is totally unnecessary to use any website and in actuality just supports a fake revenue stream to yet another advertiser network.

You can block addthis.com and similar, such as the facebook like button, tweet this, etc - across all websites by using an Internet filter; DNS Redirector is one method, some routers support domain blocking, or a subscription product like WebSense, N2H2, M86
