    It seems that the wibiya toolbar has been added to this site.
    As I don't want this, I'd like to be able to block it.

    thanks

    You're fast, I just added that! You can minimize it by clicking on the down arrows in the bottom right. As for blocking it entirely, I don't know if there's a way to do that.

    I don't know that we'll keep it. Just looking for ways to improve the site and came across this tool. I'm glad you started a thread about it so you and others can discuss whether you like it or not (clearly you don't) and why.

    :eek:

    Well, I didn't really like it either. Was just looking at it to see how it would work. It has now been removed.

    well exactly ... anything that appears unasked-for on my computer is like a trojan (or just malware generally) to me!
    I was really asking if you can make it user configurable -- which I'm guessing you can't -- but the way I am blocking it is by adding the following to my hosts file:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1       s7.addthis.com
    127.0.0.1       cdn.wibiya.com
