I've seen posts be shut down in the past because apparently all you have to do is "ClIcK tHe BiG yElLoW bUtToN" but that is not the case anymore and ADF.LY will now only let you advance to your download if you allow them to have notifications on your browser, this is unavoidable, their is no button to just advance without it and if you click "Deny" it will not allow you to progress. These Notifications are obviously going to be criminal malware ads and will flood your browser just like any virus. So please stop using ADF.LY, and please stop being ignorant to the fact that a huge problem exists with it.
This has been going on for years, I myself just ignore it and go with an alternative if there is for mods or if it's a map or Bedrock addon I just click off and go to the next thing and if there is nothing I'll find something else to do instead. There is those that hate adfly or ad sites in general and those that say 'get a better adblocker/malware protection'. I personally don't care/hate it since I'm not desperate to find out and got more sick of Adfly the more I saw the site, but I see it less and less since I use Curseforge or Minecraftmaps.com if I'm after certain content which has none of that but I do my part on spotlighting the creations to show my care and help the devs out at least if I'm not donating. Adfly more recently I've only seen for Bedrock addons in the last few weeks I've been away from my usual sites when I checking them out for the first time for something random to do and less on the MCForums. So usually I think the mod repost sites do it still these days (guessing though, not been to one since as I don't need to for obvious reasons, they repost mods and don't always have what I'm after anymore) or older mod dev threads on these forums if they are still active but I've not seen it since, even on Planetminecraft either to my knowledge.
If I were to show I care for a creator I'll make a video on it or donate, mostly a video though, "if" I have experienced their creation but I won't go to adfly if I haven't even touched the thing and it's a wall in place which while what they have created may be good, their first impression isn't worth my time when they do that. They lost my chance to click the skip ad button and only the one that leads to the ad site.
