Re: Redirect

"Wish there was a way to redirect the script so it runs on their server and see how they like it."

To be fair when its done properly and with the users permission instead of ads its pretty good, the users don't get distracted by ads and the site owner still gets some income.

The issue is when the site has been compromised and the site owner is not aware that it is happening, in that case your suggestion hardly seems fair as the server would just belong to a completely innocent party.
