Log in to your account (like you did to post this question) and read the forum. You'll notice those ads are gone. One of the perks of being a member is enjoying the forum with far fewer ads.

Those of you not aware of the ads being referred to here just need to "log out" of your account and read the forum. Log back in and all the ads you saw disappear.

When you log in to you're account next time tinped check the box labeled "remember me". Doing so allows the forum software to recognize you and allow you in without the log in process from that computer or device. Not recommended if you are viewing from a publicly shared computer but perfectly safe and acceptable from a private or home computer.

Thanks for explaining that Craig. Certainly makes life easier and more pleasant. Until, that is, one is tempted to do the latest OS upgrade, and have to enter all the damn log-ins and 'remember me's again. Bit of a pain that. So much for the pundits always going on about "change your username and password regularly"..!

Browser upgrades can be a bit of a pain Pete. Monthly(or at least quarterly) password changes are still one of the best defenses against identity theft. Most people have one, maybe two passwords they use for everything meaning if I figure out your email or forum password I likely have your banking ones too.
