PostSubject: Ads? Spam?   Sun Jun 09, 2013 5:55 pm

Yo, it just me or is this forum FULL of spam ads? Opinions? Like I scroll up and there's a big pair of titties looking at me and its like... Dude. I'm trying to talk to my friends about music and hangouts. Haha. Thoughts? Like I feel like I'm gonna get a fucking virus or some shit being on here. Anyone looking to get rid of these ads too? I mean damn.

If you're using Firefox, Chrome, or Opera, you can install adblock. I don't see any ads with it turned on.

That's weird, I'm just using standard browsers like safari and Firefox and I've seen 0 ads.

I noticed this when I set up another forum using this - the ads are part of the package since it's free. Some of us can't see them because they are turned off for moderators.

You can pay to remove them for guests, but otherwise you have to leave them there.

Ah, okay that makes sense. We should look into the cost of removing these. If it's not too much, I'd be willing to put in.

If that's the case, we should definitely throw down on that.

What? Dude, there's a link in my post to the page, with a big green button that says "Install for [your browser]." It even says "It's free!" in bold letters right above the button.

Not to be THAT asshole, but no way am I downloading all this antivirus spyware malware adbusting shit on my new MacBook Pro. It's just not gonna happen. I will pay for the yearly ad blocker if that's what it takes. If I want to see huge titties in my face, I'll google "porn," but I don't want to see them on the place I use to talk to friends.
