I don't know what kind of ad provider/tracker trupotik is, but they're adding a solid minute to CR's load time. Please dump them.

If you're a premium member, and it looks like you are, you shouldn't be seeing any ads while logged into CR anyway.

Apparently they are an "audience measurement" company. A script from them is showing up as one of the ones blocked by NoScript while I'm viewing this page, so premium members are affected.

I constantly have a "processing request..." and "Waiting for tms.truoptik.com" message on the bottom left of my screen, even when viewing videos Fullscreen. It's super annoying and I can't figure out how to get it to go the hell away.

The OTT Marketing Cloud powered by Tru Optik is an integrated data management, campaign activation, audience measurement, and marketing attribution platform designed to empower media companies, publishers, and advertisers with the ability to better monetize audiences and engage their target consumers across OTT and Connected TV.


even if you pay for a premium membership, CR will still try to squeeze as much profit as possible through data analytics and marketing cloud services. because who cares if paid members gets worse service as a result when CR can profit.

meanwhile, servers still go down on select days of the week, despite public outcry over such outages. data analytic and marketing is a much higher priority, even above paid customers apparently.

i would love to be proven wrong here, but the servers remain unfixed, and we now have this thread >_>

if you use the non-chrome version of Opera (12.1x) you can easily block the entire offending domain without needing any add-ons/extension.

look into modifying your '.0.etc.0.hosts' or 'windows.0.system32.0.drivers.0.0etc.0.hosts' file regarding the servers.

replace '.0.' with '/'

stupid CR/cloudflare crap prevents posting in the proper format.
