Any and all ideas and feedback for Smoothwall

Making the block page for adverts e.g. googleadservices.com etc. more clear to end users

It would be handy if there was a way of making the advert blocked message (for googleadservices.com etc) appear more obvious i.e. change the CSS of the resultant page to make the text bold, red in colour and bigger. As it stands it leads to people blaming our system i.e. network\browser\Smoothwall because its almost like a blank screen (with a tiny 'Advert blocked' message in gray writing in the top left of the page - this is very easy to miss and misconstrue as the page not loading. This will only get worse on mobile devices with smaller screens, which we are beginning to roll out as part of a BYOD strategy.

Most users think that there are browsing issues when they browse for a product on google and the top 3 links are usually advert related, they usually get the above block message and assume browser issues.
