Recently people have been posting the troll links that lead to the flashing screen and face (Jeff The Killer or whatever its called). If you havent seen this before, its a screamer, a video/picture/gif designed to purposely scare and startle people. Its really the kind of thing that is just unneeded in this community. We shouldnt have to be afraid to click a link here.

(i swear to god this isnt a trick link. just to the thread with the quote v ). If you dont trust me, you dont have to click it.

I mostly wanted to make this post to say that there IS a way to disable the link/website. However, it does require you to go to the website, so mute your computer and/or take off your headphones. Have the program "Adblocker" installed on your web browser (works fine on chrome, im sure it can work for InternetExplorer, FireFox). Click the link, and go to the site. Just warning you, you cannot zoom out on the site to minimize the image (at least when i tried >_>). Click on the Adblocker logo and select "Block an Ad on this page". Just click on the face, and if necessary scroll across until the image and sound are blocked. You should see a gray screen of some sort because the image is no longer there. If done correctly, from now on the site wont work and hopefully will no longer cause heart attacks when you visit it.



I'm well aware there are alternatives and im sure there are easier ways, but this is just what i did and i found it worked quite well. I hope this helps someone.

OP if you can provide us with the name of the (flash/image) object for those who have an adblocker installed can manually block it instead of going to the site. Should be something ending on .swf for flash video and .gif for animated gifs.

Alternatively, you can run noscript and never accidentally facecheck .swfs ever again.

Bump. Did it and it worked . Just mute and bare the flashing image until you block it.

EDIT: For those whom have adblocker, this is the original link.
