This is a link post Sneak miners
This is an interesting way to gain monies without advertising. Easily blocked if you know how but also much easier to miss like traditional adverts. The web needs to fund itself somehow and ads are now pretty much blocked by default.

Okay, presumably adding coin-hive.com to your hosts file stops this.

This is a normal post But there's others.
There's a huge load of non-tech savvy users that will be non the wiser to this, as we well know. At least with ads you can physically see something. It's an interesting debate though, how can the web fund itself?

This is a normal post A fair amount of advertising/trackers would be fine, but too many sites take the piss.
But try visiting something like the Manchester Evening News website without an adblocker, makes my laptop fans roar like a jet engine.

This is a normal post It's fucking horrific ain't it.
Websites started taking the piss and it fucked that model over. Now they need a new one, and I guess some will see this as an avenue. Ram loads of coin miners in, maybe with some ads for good measure then post the fucking lot to b3ta.

This is a normal post I think you missed my point
It's not TPB, it's when other regular sites like those god awful local news ones get hold of the idea.

This is a normal post I can see why they're doing it, but who spends more than a few minutes at a time on pirate bay?

This is a normal post 20-30% of your CPU will get used by this!?
It's not like I needed that anyway, for I dunno, making the fucking computer do anything? Your processor doesn't run that hot in the majority of top/modern computer games.
