Ads?

Post by Nuclear » Tue Jan 24, 2017 3:59 am

Ok, I don't come here that often, but suddenly I'm seeing a lot of ads from Amazon at the top of every page and one down in every thread that I hadn't seen on the forum before.

Something change in the past few months?

Okay, technically that was an answer, but it is a little on the unenlightening side.

And I've been around since 2007, haven't seen any of the plethora of ads I've seen since the beginning of the year.

I haven't changed my operating system (iOS) or browser (Safari) recently. I let others beta test.

Not a huge deal, all I'm seeing now are Amazon ads. Whatever.

I don't see the ads but I use plugins and don't run on Windoz.

Have you tried AdBlock? Works well for me.

I like getting some money from the ads. I pay for hosting and stuff.

I don't mind the adds. Especially considering it helps generate revenue for the owners that help keep this site going.
