Why is it...?

Why is it that the forums for camper mods and restoration, and owners helping owners, are about 2/3rds full of ads for "campers for sale", or "campers wanted"...?
Shouldn't those threads be posted in the classifieds?

Tom I just to a look at those sections and I am not seeing the classifieds you are seeing. Where you formally signed into the site when you were seeing those? Lots of ads etc if signed in.

I see the ads on my Goggle Chrome, and have wondered where they come from.

I'm on a standard laptop (not a tablet) using IE10 explorer. I only see one banner ad that appears below the 'welcome Pam Garlow' line, and a couple small square ones on the right side panel. These ads will show links to items that are similar to recent searches or website visits. They're not not overly obtrusive and easily ignored.

Just went onto my Ipad and I saw the ads but when I logged in no ads..... wonder why some still see them when logged in.

Have you tried logging out and clearing your computer cache and then logging back in?

I keep getting a young lady in revealing clothing atop a pool table. Ad if for a fitness center. Not sure why that applies to trailers. I just ignore them.

Often the types of adds you see are targeted towards your browsing history.

Most all the ads I see are things I've looked at.
Indian motorcycles, metal detectors, trailer accessories, etc.

Roy, I see that you're only questioning the fitness center

Hummmm Roy what types of searches did you do to get her? Perhaps I could adjust my search habits to get a nice young man with revealing clothing...
