I did click on it and you have to pay $10 to remove them.

I think the forum owner is the person who would be expected to pay. Personally I just see a narrow greybar marking the place where the advert is... thanks I presume to Kaspersky Security Suite's anti-ad/anti-banner settings. Very Happy

I used to see ads but recently I don't see the ads, just a grey box (your ad here), maybe there's a blocker removing them or bizhat have decieded ads here is a waste of time Laughing

Some of the ads appeared a few days ago but like you John, I'm now only getting a grey bar with "Your Ad Here". Don't look at them anyway....

Ah, just looking via my laptop and I can see the ads now, I have a pop-up blocker on but that doesn't stop 'em.


So my desktop seems to block the ads somehow (it also blocks the R2ok banner).

The ads seem in the main harmless but I have seen some soft porn-looking ones with women's backsides wearing only G-strings which doesn't offend me directly but I don't want to be seeing that stuff with the family looking over my shoulder as they walk past.

Confused

That's the problem with free forums, you are stuck with the ads that the board provider see's fit.
