Until yesterday, I kept my computer settings pretty open to accept those ads, but man.....when that hideous toe fungus ad kept coming up everywhere I went on the site, I reset my Java settings to cut them out. No thanks.

I feel it's a total invasion. So much so that I've started a list to ensure we don't do business with those who advertise in this way!

Is there anything I should do to stop them? Meaning, is it my PC or the site?

Are you "logged in" to your account when this happens?

That explains it. I bought a new computer and was perusing the site without logging in. Still, the Java adjustments did eliminate the ads. Of course, there is a needed balance between the ad productivity of any site vs. the sharing, but if prospective new members are seeing all those ads when checking out the site, shewww....I'm glad I'm a member.

A "perk" of forum membership at most advertising supported forums is those ads within posts are removed when you log into your account.

For those of you whom do not understand what we are talking about simply log out at the top of the page and view a few threads then log back into your account to see the disappearing act.

For those of you whom have been lurking the forum feel free to sign up and get an account and you too can enjoy fewer ads No rule says you have to post, though we're pretty friendly and hardly ever bite,,, much. ...and no, we do NOT sell your email addresses. The site team here jealously guards that info and work pretty hard to keep this place spam free.

Oh yeah! I didn't mind that one a bit. In fact, I was considering inserting the ad photo into one of Eric's "buttock line" conversations.

Hi CP. I've tested your idea and I think you're right and I can understand the need to keep increasing revenues.

But the issue I have is that it looks as though the person making the post is endorsing the ad.

Can a disclaimer or something be added?

Well, in that case I endorse the sexy one for Spanish lessons
and reject the one for toe fungus.
