Ad Muncher is not spam

Ad Muncher hooks the internet itself, not the browser because it restricts advertising for every single program on your computer. That makes it much more useful than Ad Block Plus or any of the other ad blockers which only work in the browser. It certainly is not spam. It is also so user configurable that I haven't even scratched the surface. It's amazingly adjustable. I paid $50.00 for it in about 2003 and it's been worth every penny. I just wish it were available for Ubuntu.

Looks like Privoxy is the only possible alternative. I'll look into it!

privoxy is cross platform, whereas ad muncher is not only exclusively windows it uses nefarious hooks into the winsock. Ad muncher is clearly NOT a loopback proxy. Additionally ad muncher has little user-tweakability. AFAIK it's interwebs spam.
