If you try to visit a website that is being blocked by Blockade, it is because that domain or ad is in the Blocklist and you will notice a little Metiix Logo  in the upper left-hand corner of your screen. You will also see  in places where ads used to be inside of the websites you visit. This  represents Blockade has intervened and that this is an ad served up by a third-party, a link to a website by an agency of ads and not the official website itself, a malicious site, or it could contain malware.

The  is to let you know that we are present and doing our job, and that there is not a problem with your internet or browser. The  is telling you that this ad or site is part of the Blocklist and it will also be noted in your Blocked Queries list.
