    How to block ad in weatherbug?

    I have been using /etc/hosts to stop ad from displaying. It blocks all until one day I notice the ad inside of weatherbug. I feel defeated! Is there any way to identify the IP address from where the ad come (weatherbug)? Or this is something new that /etc/hosts wouldn't be able to stop?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Can you name one so I can try?

    As far as I know, AdFree updates the ad source ip address into /etc/hosts. Unless weatherbug employs different way to display the ad, we need to know the source ip so it can be blocked.

    I tried AdFree, it fails to block this particular ad.
