I am the OP in this thread. Someone posted the same day I posted the
original message that there was no doubleclick (DC) usage on the Ebay
page. So, I decided to post a link or page description of what I had
seen. I went to Ebay, and there were no DC links when I got there.
Well, I was sober and knew what I saw earlier. So, I have been
watching. Sometimes DC is used on Ebay, other times it is not.
This is really weird I dont understand ????
Just watch their home page, particularly paypal logos and ads. Right
click on them and select "Properties". You may or may not be dealing
with DC.

Adding that line to my hosts file (ebay.doubleclick.net)
tells me immediately if DC is in use at the time. When they are using
it, half the junk on their homepage is missing. Kind of nice that way.

I sure can not understand why they change it like that ????

You link above did not work. My HOSTS file killed it.... (i like
that)....

Below follows another 368 doubleclick server names, if you really want to
stop access using a HOSTS file only.

However I have zero (0) doubleclick entries in my HOSTS file. All current
and FUTURE doubleclick servers are blocked on my PC with just one line in
a PAC (proxy auto configuration) file using a program called eDexter.

Crap! I have some of those in my hosts file but didn't realise they
had so many adservers. Thx.

Right click the file and select properties, click the check box that
says "read only" and then apply.

"eDexter is a program that acts as a local-only (it is not accessible
throught the Internet) HTTP server on your computer. It is used to replace
the empty boxes that occur when you use the Hosts file to block ads. eDexter
will put one of its own images into the box that would have been occupied by
the advertisement. This way, you will not have large, empty boxes in your
browser and will instead have an image where the box used to be. "

Read what Calamity Ken says. eDexter also allows you to block on a
partial web address, whereas HOSTS will only block a fully qualified top
level domain. So you can access a site but still block out the adverts on
that site.
