Exactly! Love the old default skin. No ads (ever) and much easier on the eyes.

Sharon, change the skin. IF/when the default skin disappears or no longer works, THAT'S when I WILL GO AWAY. Better to do that than lose my eyesight.

These ad's are one of the liabilities of a "free" forum. In order to defray operating costs, the owners will "sell" space. On the "for pay" forums, we do not have such. Something to think about.

Just a Heads Up about unwanted/offensive ads

NEVER click on the links in these ads that promise to stop them in the future. As a result you:

Are confirming that you are a valid address and can be added to yet another list.
and/or
May be inviting a virus in through a back door, some of which can shut you down and demand a ransom to be cleared (and don't anyway)

Several sources name adult sites as the #1 source of virus attacks.

While the price of freedom can sometimes seem high, the cost of censorship is even higher.

On my desktop computer, I use Firefox with Adblocker and very rarely see any ads. On my IPad with Safari, I seem to get more ads.

I get only directed ads. I wonder if erasing cookies or preventing them prevents directed ads and then some people who do that get inappropriate ads?

Gee... there's the aforementioned "offensive" ad off to the right. I never noticed it. I guess it's because of my built it ignore-crap-that-annoys-me. I'm guessing the Admin can control the type of ad that "adclick" auto-posts. This one is probably not being created by past-browser history but by some generic "show this type of ad on this site" mechanism.

Bottom line, in my book... suck it up kids. It's the internet. Deal with it.

Inappropriate ads on this forum are not just a product of outside concerns.
I sent a PM to a forum member requesting information on a rally and what I received
was a one sentence answer to my question accompanied by a full page of right wing political porno bashing the poor , women, and minorities . I objected and was told where I could place my objection . The pop up ads you are receiving hopefully are less offensive.

Ads are fed by google and we've contacted them regarding having this one blocked. It may take a day before they take action. Thanks for your patience....

I second this. I use adblocker plus and I had to turn it off on the page just to see if there were any ads at all on the page because I didn't see any. It is not perfect but when I switched computers I missed it and installed it ASAP.

Ad companies get paid by both views and clicks, so a targeted ad being more likely to be clicked is advantageous. However the Ad company may also have sold x number of "views" of a specific advertisement thus one can find themselves seeing advertisements totally unrelated to interests or viewing/search history.

Also demographic and "related group" type information can drive ads. People in your zip code, shopping for certain music or products, searching online for certain items/topics, who are on facebook (which may provide your age) may like animated porn or games more than the general public. Thus you get those advertisements.

Even the stores you search in for products or the price point of the specific products you look at can influence what groups you are associated with.

It is honestly sort of scary, I saw a television program that demonstrated by just knowing what store you shop for clothes and groceries. What make of car you drive, favorite alcoholic beverage, what newspaper or magazines you read regularly the person demonstrated the ability to accurately state what your position was on three or four key political issues.

What I want to know is why is it that I keep getting the nasty looking toenail fungus ad and not the animated porno game ads? I'm not into gaming or porno but given a choice....
